If you decide to give kdevops a shot to allow folks to test wifi devices easily
I'm happy to give any tips / advice. PCIe passthrough is supported through
'make dynconfig' so you could end up using that so to not crash a host. We're
using that to test new block devices with new filesystem developments.
The only issue we've run into when doing this is when a PCI device resets
the sysfs file changes on the host so PCI passthrough stops, working
around this manually is documented here:

How we fix this upstream for pcie passthrough remains unclear yet. For
wifi devices I am not sure what sort of things triggers full PCI device
resets, perhaps firmware crashes?
