What is the platform, kernel version, and what version of libnl are you
using (libnl 1 or libnl3?)

There have been multiple bugs recently filed and fixed in this area on
RHEL6/CentOS6. In particular, there was a problem with max_vfs > 50 that
had exactly this symptom. It was solved by a patch to libnl-1.1. If your
platform uses libnl-1.1, this could be the source of the problem. It is
fixed in the upstream libnl-1.1.4 maintenance release.

I unfortunately am not sure where the libnl-1.1 git is (I only have the
git tree for libnl3), so I can't give you the exact commit message, but
in short the problem was that libnl was using too small of a buffer for
the netlink socket, so when there were a lot of vfs, the netlink message
containing vf info was truncated.
