After re-analyzing the code paths, I also could not find the use case
where PF/VF PRI/PASID is enabled in out of order(VF first and then PF).
Also, I had no luck in finding that old bug report email which triggered
me to come up with this complicated fix. As per my current analysis, as
you have mentioned, PF/VF PRI/PASID enable seems to happen only during
device creation time.
Following are some of the possible code paths:

Similarly PF/VF PRI/PASID possible disable paths are,
But even in all of these paths, PF/VF PRI/PASID disable have to happen
in order (VF first and then PF).
So we can implement the logic of not doing anything for VF when its
related PRI/PASID calls. But my questions is, is it safe to go with
these assumptions? Since all these dependencies we have found are not
explicitly defined, if some one breaks it will also affect PRI/PASID
logic. Let me know your comments.
