[dpdk-users] Using PF bound to IGB_UIO, together with sr-iov VFs passed to guests

I'm having trouble trying to build a scenario were the host has the PF
bound to igb_uio, and working with dpdk application, together with sr-iov
VFs passthrough to guest machines.

Libvirt is not able to bring up the guest, and exit with internal error.
I assume that the vlan/mac initialization which is working well, when the
PF is assigned to ixgbe.k does not work when bound to igb_uio.

Is this an igb_uio issue or libvirt ?
is there a workaround for this ?
