> allocation failure
> From: Mitch Williams <mitch.a.williams at intel.com>
> In some circumstances, the firmware may fail to allocate a VSI for a VF.
> When this happens, the driver does not react well to the bad news and has a
> panic attack.
> To fix this problem, check the return value from i40e_alloc_vf_res and don't
> try to configure the device further if it failed. Additionally, explicitly clear the
> INIT bit when we free VF resources, so that this bit will be in the proper state
> in the failure case, and won't blow up elsewhere.
