Hi Alex:
        What's you mentioned seems the bonding driver solution.
Paper "Live Migration with Pass-through Device for Linux VM" describes
it. It does VF hotplug during migration. In order to maintain Network
connection when VF is out, it takes advantage of Linux bonding driver to
switch between VF NIC and emulated NIC. But the side affects, that
requires VM to do additional configure and the performance during
switching two NIC is not good.
