I think you meant ADI vs SF. It looks to me that ADI is limited to the 
scope of scalable IOV but SF not.

I follow the name from virtio. I will switch to vdpa_*.

Ok, will do.

The question is what do we want do match here.

1) "virtio" vs "vhost", I implemented matching method for this in mdev 
series, but it looks unnecessary for vDPA device driver to know about 
this. Anyway we can use sysfs driver bind/unbind to switch drivers
2) virtio device id and vendor id. I'm not sure we need this consider 
the two drivers so far (virtio/vhost) are all bus drivers.

Thanks
