[vfio-users] SRIOV & amdgpu

Does anyone here have experience with using SRIOV on the new AMD FirePro
S series? We are trying it using a FirePRO S7150 which should support up
to 16 VF using SRIOV [1]. The hypervisor is running Fedora 25 beta with
kernel 4.9rc1. We want to use qemu/kvm (instead of vmware).

If we look with lspci, we get:
Capabilities: [330 v1] Single Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV)
 IOVCap:	Migration-, Interrupt Message Number: 000
 IOVCtl:	Enable- Migration- Interrupt- MSE- ARIHierarchy+
 IOVSta:	Migration-
 Initial VFs: 16, Total VFs: 16, Number of VFs: 0, Function Dependency
Link: 00
 VF offset: 256, stride: 1, Device ID: 692f
 Supported Page Size: 00000553, System Page Size: 00000001
 Region 0: Memory at 000003bee0000000 (64-bit, prefetchable)
 Region 2: Memory at 000003bff0000000 (64-bit, prefetchable)
 Region 5: Memory at 91c00000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable)
 VF Migration: offset: 00000000, BIR: 0

So, it's there but not enabled...

I've looked at the AMDGPU module and I think it checks a table in the
vbios to determine if it can do SRIOV. Upon testing it, the flag 'vBIOS
is sr-iov ready' is set but the flag 'sr-iov is enabled on this GPU' is not.

Anybody any idea how to activate this? It works with vmware, so I should
be possible to do it with qemu too.
