Fair point. Maybe something like "IBM ZDEV CLP is used to pass zPCI
device features to guest"

The structure itself is not mapped 1:1 to a hardware structure, but it
does serve as a collection of information that was derived from other
hardware structures.

"Used for passing hardware feature information about a zpci device
between the host and guest" ?
