... since INTx is not supported by-spec for virtual functions.

But the spec also states that VFs must implement the interrupt pin
register as read-only zero, so either this is redundant or it's a
workaround for VFs that aren't quite compliant?  Thanks,

The end goal for me is just to NOT do the read across the PCI bus for no 
good reason. We have devices with thousands of virtual functions and 
this read is simply not useful in this case and can be optimized as I 
did. So from a functionality point of view probably the patch does not 
add any value as you mentioned, but it is really useful as a 
micro-optimization.

Thanks for the clarification, it's helpful to understand the motivation
for a patch that otherwise seems unnecessary.
