But the devices that this is valid for are exactly only PCI ones.  And
all PCI ones.  That's why I included it in capability type='pci'.  It's
not capability by itself, it's just information extracted from one Byte
in PCI config.

We have nested capabilities already. This would be a nested capability
below the main PCI capability, which scopes it to just PCI devices.

The 'multifunction' element I added has nothing to do with virtual
functions.  It merely indicates that the physical device is supposed to
be multifunction; as in there is another device with the same address,
but different value of 'function' part of that address.

That doesn't really seem to add any value then since an application can
already see there are multiple functions in the same slot via the address
info we provide


If that's always the case, then yes.  And I don't know about any
occasion when that wouldn't be true, so I'll remove that in v2.

Daniel
