Thanks for holding this meeting Robert, I think everyone found it useful.

I spoke to Robert after the meeting and he clarified to me what he was
trying to say during the meeting, that I did not understand at the time.

In fact, he already suggested in this thread in an earlier message[1].

By reading the PCI domain/bus/slot/function fields, we could use some
combination of these in the PCI alias to distinguish different network
connections. (Some wildcarding support may need to be added.)

This might be sufficiently abstract to be not considered as "network
information in nova".
