+Date: July 2012
+Contact: Huang Ying <ying.huang@intel.com>
+Description:
+ d3cold_allowed is bit to control whether the corresponding PCI
+ device can be put into D3Cold state. If it is cleared, the
+ device will never be put into D3Cold state. If it is set, the
+ device may be put into D3Cold state if other requirements are
+ satisfied too. Reading this attribute will show the current
+ value of d3cold_allowed bit. Writing this attribute will set
+ the value of d3cold_allowed bit.

+Description:
+ This file appears when a physical PCIe device supports SR-IOV.
+ Userspace applications can read this file to determine the
+ maximum number of Virtual Functions (VFs) a PCIe physical
+ function (PF) can support. Typically, this is the value reported
+ in the PF's SR-IOV extended capability structure's TotalVFs
+ element. Drivers have the ability at probe time to reduce the
+ value read from this file via the pci_sriov_set_totalvfs()
+ function.

+Description:
+ This file appears when a physical PCIe device supports SR-IOV.
+ Userspace applications can read and write to this file to
+ determine and control the enablement or disablement of Virtual
+ Functions (VFs) on the physical function (PF). A read of this
+ file will return the number of VFs that are enabled on this PF.
+ A number written to this file will enable the specified
+ number of VFs. A userspace application would typically read the
+ file and check that the value is zero, and then write the number
+ of VFs that should be enabled on the PF; the value written
+ should be less than or equal to the value in the sriov_totalvfs
+ file. A userspace application wanting to disable the VFs would
+ write a zero to this file. The core ensures that valid values
+ are written to this file, and returns errors when values are not
+ valid. For example, writing a 2 to this file when sriov_numvfs
+ is not 0 and not 2 already will return an error. Writing a 10
+ when the value of sriov_totalvfs is 8 will return an error.
