Resolution: "Don't do that!!" :-)
Seriously, though, there are any number of things that someone with root
access to the host could do that would completely confuse libvirt and
break everything. For example, assigning a PF to a guest after having
assigned one or more of that PF's VFs to guests.
But I guess there's no harm in trying to mitigate the damage. As long as
it doesn't complicate the code to the extent that it becomes more
confusing, difficult to maintain, and liable to other regressions.

If qemu knows enough to unplug the device from the guest, then I'm
presuming that it must also be sending a DEVICE_DELETED event up to
libvirt. Of course libvirt isn't expecting this, and so probably throws
it away, right?

What happens if the device disappeared and then came back before you got
here? (i.e. by setting sriov_numvfs = 0, and then sriov_numvfs = 128 (or
It's too late in the day for my to process this too much, so I'm going
to come back to it tomorrow. I will continue on to see if there is other
"simple" stuff in subsequent patches though - even if we can't get all
of this pushed right away, there's a significant amount that can be pushed.
