*NetworkManager* now supports VFs for SR-IOV devices
With this update, the *NetworkManager* system service supports creating virtual functions (VFs) for Single Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV) PCI devices. The number of VFs can be specified using the "sriov-num-vfs" option in the device section of the *NetworkManager* configuration file. After VFs are created, *NetworkManager* can activate connection profiles on them.
Note that some properties of a VF interface, such as the Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU), can only be set to values compatible with those that are set on the physical interface.
