Thanks for your quick reply and great solution.
However, I'm still not sure one thing: Do you mean that live migration is impossible because of hardware limitation? I'm reading the SR-IOV specification now. And it mentioned that a VF can migrate to another system through some kind of methods. But the migration may need the support of MR-IOV.
What do you think of the saying in the specification? I'm not sure what the migration is in the specification.

It is not possible to live migrate a guest which has a PCI device passed

through to it.
However you can use PCI hotplug to unplug a device right before
migration and reintroduce another (possibly even different) device at
the other end. This requires hotplug to be correctly configured in your
guest to load the right drivers etc in response to hotplug events.
