This commit log should be clear that this functionality is motivated
by *mlx5* behavior.  The description above makes it sound like this is
generic PCI spec behavior, and it is not.

It may be a reasonable design that conforms to the spec, and we hope
the model will be usable by other designs, but it is not required by
the spec and AFAIK there is nothing in the spec you can point to as
background for this.

So don't *remove* the text you have above, but please *add* some
preceding background information about how mlx5 works.

  This adds /sys/bus/pci/devices/.../sriov_vf_msix_count for VF
  devices and is writable ...

  = 0 - will reset to a device-specific default value

  For PF devices, this adds a read-only
  /sys/bus/pci/devices/.../sriov_vf_total_msix file that contains the
  total number of MSI-X vectors available for distribution among VFs.

Just as in sysfs-bus-pci, this file should be listed first, because
you must read it before you can use vf_msix_count.

  pci_enable_vf_overlay() and pci_disable_vf_overlay() should be
  called by PF drivers that support changing the number of MSI-X
  vectors assigned to their VFs.

But I still don't like the fact that we're calling
sysfs_create_files() and sysfs_remove_files() directly.  It makes
complication and opportunities for errors.

I don't see the advantage of creating these files only when the PF
driver supports this.  The management tools have to deal with
sriov_vf_total_msix == 0 and sriov_vf_msix_count == 0 anyway.
Having the sysfs files not be present at all might be slightly
prettier to the person running "ls", but I'm not sure the code
complication is worth that.

I see a hint that Alex might have requested this "only visible when PF
driver supports it" functionality, but I don't see that email on
linux-pci, so I missed the background.

It's true that we have a clump of "sriov_*" sysfs files and this makes
the clump a little bigger.  I wish we had put them all inside an "iov"
directory to begin with, but that's water under the bridge.
