Since IOV BARs have their own memory-decoding enabled bit, which is
usually tied to the lifetime of virtual functions, the PF driver could
do IOV BAR resize during its lifetime (without releasing its own resources).

With regular BAR, the size of MMIO resource is equal to bar_size.
With IOV BAR, the size of MMIO resource is equal to iov_bar_size *
total_vfs.

It means that the driver could use the pci_resize_resource in two ways,
it could just call it like for the native BAR - overall MMIO resource is
going to grow, or it could limit its total_vfs (overall MMIO resource is
going to shrink, but from VF perspective, its individual BAR is going to
be larger).

To ilustrate:

Native:

1G 2G
+--+ +--+
| | | |
+--+ | |
| |
+--+

Resource grows from 1G to 2G. No surprises.


IOV 4 VFs:

1G 2G
+--+ +--+
| | | |
+--+ | |
| | | |
+--+ +--+
| | | |
+--+ | |
| | | |
+--+ +--+
| |
| |
| |
+--+
| |
| |
| |
+--+

Resource grows from 4G to 8G. But for larger number of VFs, and larger
BAR sizes, finding MMIO space to accomodate may end up being tricky on
some platforms.


IOV (limited to 2 VFs):

1G 2G
+--+ +--+
| | | |
+--+ | |
| | | |
+--+ +--+
| | | |
+--+ | |
| | | |
+--+ +--+

No changes in resource size, we started with 4G and we end up with 4G
after resize (but those 2 VFs can now use 2G BAR).

Does that make sense?

Thanks
