Add driver support for Intel X710 Virtual Function

Add kernel support (i40evf) for newer Intel X710 Virtual Function. Actually, there is a driver for older X520 Intel Virtual Function (ixgbevf), but no module for newer cards... It allows to use SR-IOV in virtualized environment, which provides a huge performance boost on network adapters supporting it.

Intel provides a configuration guide to use SR-IOV with X(L)710 cards :

Thanks,
Nicolas

    Please, Sophos, 2019 is knocking at the door and still no support for X710 - did you even noticed that this was released in
    _2014_???

    It´s a shame!
    And no support for Intel X722 either, which was released in Q3 2017!

    I support ! For a long time there was no update on compatibility of iron. Please add drivers for Lenovo SR 530

    I have QLogic bcm57xxx cards that support SR-IOV and would like to use it with my software UTM 9.
