The master device and VF representors were distinguished by
presence of port name, master device did not have one. The new Linux
kernels starting from 5.0 provide the port name for master device
and the implemented representor recognizing method does not work.
The new recognizing method is based on quiering the VF number,
created on the base of the device.

The IFLA_NUM_VF attribute is returned by kernel if IFLA_EXT_MASK
attribute is specified in the Netlink request message.

Also the presence of device symlink in device sysfs folder is
added to distinguish representors with sysfs based method.

Please spell check this comment (and others).

Since assert() is often removed in non-debug envirionments, why
not add a log message and return an error instead?

Assert should be removed (compiled out) in non-debug environments. If not (suddenly) - it must be resolved.

> why not add a log message and return an error instead?
Because there is no code producing assert wrong condition. No valid combination of entry values to produce master&&representor. It is intended by design. We do not expect master&&representor condition at all. It should never happen. Otherwise, we should notify the developer (because design is corrupted somewhere - and definitely it is not a runtime/user problem). So, assert seems to be the most relevant entity here.

>>instead?
We could add error/log in parallel, not instead of.

With best regards,
Slava

The representor_id field is also being used on the info query from user. We shouldn't report back the vport id of the representor rather its index according to phys_port_name.
You can define a different field, maybe called vport.
