They're not equal from my point of review. When the VF edev is created
from VF's pdn, edev->physfn is determined. Furthermore, edev->physfn
is only meaningful to VF's edev. It's why I think you needn't introduce
another one flag (EEH_DEV_VF), which is just duplicated to (edev->physfn).
So I think you can use following condition to check if one edev is created
from VF's pdn or others:
/* VF's edev */
/* All other cases */
In order to use the above condition, edev->phyfn is initialized to dereference
the VF's physical function when it's created from VF's pdn in arch/powerpc/kernel/pdn.c.
