Hello Piotr:

Maybe you should update the pyroute2 library, but this is a blind shot.

What I recommend you do is to find the error you have when retrieving the
interface VFs. In the same compute node, use this method [1] but remove the
decorator [2]. Then, in a root shell, run python again:
  >>> from neutron.privileged.agent.linux import ip_lib
  >>> ip_lib.get_link_vfs('ens2f0', '')

That will execute the pyroute2 code without the privsep decorator. You'll
see what error is returning the method.
