Until a new better spec appears...

I know there is always fun when it comes to the people involved in
such a screwup having to admit it in public but this should IMHO be
tied to a PCI identifier table so that we know what the afflicted
hardware is. Otherwise some day in the future SRIOV will grow new features
and we'll have no idea what particular devices we need to narrow the
workaround too and indeed not necessarily even know this device is the
only one, as we'll silently fix other stuff then have it break on us
