This series looks more about a missing feature than a proper fix.
We have a new pf/vf api supported in this series and a new behaviour for 
This is not stable material to me unless you expose a clear problem that this 
series wants to address.

Yes, this a new feature enable related, but this patch set will not introduce 
problem, because vf
promiscuous mode is close by default, this set is just send out for request 
from users that want to use
vf promiscuous. They will open it in their APP. NOT only ixgbe, but also other 
NIC vf HAS SUPPORT this feature.
