Actually the suggestion I had from Don Dutile was that we should be
looking at creating a pci-stub like driver specifically for those type
of devices, but without the ability to arbitrarily assign devices.
Basically we have to white-list it in one device at a time for those
kind of things.

It's still not clear what the point of that would be.

A PF-stub to do device-assignment(-like) ops preserves the current security 
and allows one to add pci-quirks at a device-level as well -- when the usual ACS
structs aren't properly added for a device, which happens quite frequently -- 
retains that common workaround as well.
Yet-another-method for VF assignment w/o even a simple PF driver stub
created multiple failure cases/configs when we were hashing the multiple options
a few weeks ago.
It's just simpler to implement a PF stub w/VF enablement ... b/c it's simple...

If you have the device ID of the thing you wanted to have work with
pci-stub before I could look at putting together a quick driver and
adding it to this set.

1d0f:0053 would be an example.
