No, *using* it would be the wrong thing (bad root; no biscuit). Except when the PF doesn't have SR-IOV capability anyway, in which case who cares. Or when the PF does have SR-IOV capability and root has ensure that she's doing the right thing. I understand the arguments about disallowing root from doing bad things. Not that I agree with them. But simply changing to a *different* driver seems pointless.
