I should remove this old comment. The Linux version I had to test that
was very old. Also I adjusted the driver to the new recommended
interface which allows to turn on the virtual functions via write to a
sysfs entry allows to use the driver in any case. That allowed me to
remove some ugly ifdefs in the code and the comment was meant to explain

Thanks for pointing this out.
