This patch enables virtio_net to switch over to a VF datapath when a VF
netdev is present with the same MAC address. It allows live migration
of a VM with a direct attached VF without the need to setup a bond/team
between a VF and virtio net device in the guest.

The hypervisor needs to enable only one datapath at any time so that
packets don't get looped back to the VM over the other datapath. When a VF
is plugged, the virtio datapath link state can be marked as down. The
hypervisor needs to unplug the VF device from the guest on the source host
and reset the MAC filter of the VF to initiate failover of datapath to
virtio before starting the migration. After the migration is completed,
the destination hypervisor sets the MAC filter on the VF and plugs it back
to the guest to switch over to VF datapath.

When BACKUP feature is enabled, an additional netdev(bypass netdev) is
created that acts as a master device and tracks the state of the 2 lower
netdevs. The original virtio_net netdev is marked as 'backup' netdev and a
passthru device with the same MAC is registered as 'active' netdev.

This patch is based on the discussion initiated by Jesse on this thread.

Much of this function is copy of netvsc_vf_join, should be shared with
netvsc.

Yes. This is based on netvsc_register_vf() and netvsc_vf_join(). But modified
to handle registration of 2 child netdevs(backup virtio and active vf).  In case
of netvsc, they only register VF. There is no backup netdev.
I think trying to make this code shareable with netvsc will introduce additional
checks and make it convoluted.

For example this function is 1:1 copy of netvsc, even with comments
and bugs (like IFF_BODING check).

This is also something that should be shared with netvsc.

The problem is with the calls that are made from this function.
Sharing would have been possible if both virtio and netvsc went with
same netdev model.

No clue why you set IFF_BONDING here...

This is to indicate to the userspace that this is a master bond device.
May be it is sufficient to just set IFF_MASTER.
