I thought about using a new set of callbacks that define the EPC events and
have the EPF drivers populate them during probe time. Like below,

```
diff --git a/include/linux/pci-epf.h b/include/linux/pci-epf.h
index e03c57129ed5..45247802d6f7 100644

When each of the event is received by the EPC driver, it will use the EPC API
to call the relevant event callback for _each_ EPF. Like below:

```

```

Does this look good to you? I can spin up an RFC series, but wanted to check the
interface design beforehand.
Thanks,
