I was not suggesting to change the functions signature. I was suggesting
dropping the fn argument for the *macros*, e.g.


since fn is always 0.

That said, I am not entirely sure if the limit really is 1 function at most. The
TRM seems to be suggesting that up to 4 functions can be supported...

Yes, sure, this can be cleaned later.

A more pressing problem is the lack of support for MSIX despite the fact that
the controller supports that *and* advertize it as a capability. That is what
was causing my problem with the Linux nvme driver and my prototype nvme epf
function driver: the host driver was seeing MSIX support (1 vector supported by
default), and so was allocating one MSIX for the device probe. But on the EP
end, it is MSI or INTX only... Working on adding that to solve this issue.
