    nfp: remove phys_port_name on flower's vNIC · fe06a64e
    Jakub Kicinski authored
    .ndo_get_phys_port_name was recently extended to support multi-vNIC
    FWs.  These are firmwares which can have more than one vNIC per PF
    without associated port (e.g. Adaptive Buffer Management FW), therefore
    we need a way of distinguishing the vNICs.  Unfortunately, it's too
    late to make flower use the same naming.  Flower users may depend on
    .ndo_get_phys_port_name returning -EOPNOTSUPP, for example the name
    udev gave the PF vNIC was just the bare PCI device-based name before
    the change, and will have 'nn0' appended after.
    
    To ensure flower's vNIC doesn't have phys_port_name attribute, add
    a flag to vNIC struct and set it in flower code.  New projects will
    not set the flag adhere to the naming scheme from the start.
    
    Fixes: 51c1df83 ("nfp: assign vNIC id as phys_port_name of vNICs which are not ports")
