See c0a41b887ce6 ("hv_netvsc: move VF to same namespace as netvsc device”).
It seems that when NetVSC master netdev changes netns, the VF is moved to the 
same netns by the NetVSC driver.
Kinda the opposite than what we are suggesting here to make sure that the 
net-failover master netdev is on a separate
netns than it’s slaves...
