[pve-devel] [PATCH common/qemu-server/manager] improve vGPU (mdev) usage for NVIDIA

This series improves the handling of NVIDIA vGPUs by exposing the optional name
and automatically adding the uuid to the qemu process (required by NVIDIA
driver). Also adds the name to the UI for selecting a mediated devices as well
as making the dropdown larger so users can see all the relevant info.

After a bit of testing with an RTX A5000 here, i'd like to tackle the bug
#3574 ("Improve SR-IOV usability")[0]

but i'd like to integrate it in my other pci passthrough series[1]
"add cluster-wide hardware device mapping"

so maybe someone can look at that and give some feedback?
my idea there would be to allow multiple device mappings per node
(instead of one only) and the qemu code would select one automatically
