Could you please provide a more detailed description? At least the name/family of the chip.

This is an SR-IOV Virtual Function device of the Intel 82599 10 Gigabit Ethernet Controller

The string is incorrect. It is _not_ an 82559. It is an 82599 device. Please make this adjustment to this device.

Name: 82599 Virtual Function

Note: We would like to change the name of this from "82599 Ethernet Controller Virtual Function" to "82599 Virtual Function" so that it is more consistent with other similar Intel virtual function devices such as 10CAh, 1515h and 1520h.

What is the purpose of the virtual function? If it is related to Ethernet, the name should mention it. Just "Virtual Function" does not tell much useful information.

We consider it superfluous to add Ethernet to the string because a tool such as 'lspci' will read the device type signature and already identifies it as an Ethernet controller.

Names of ethernet controller chips traditionally mention that the device is an ethernet controller, so it should be the case for virtual functions, too. Please fix it for the other virtual functions as well. Sorry for the delay.
