Post Intel Pro/1000PT with Supermicro X8DTN+ and Intel E5620
Links below to specific parts used here. I tested the Intel EXPI9402PT by enabling it for direct path, adding it to a virtual machine, and connecting to an ASA. I was able to SSH and ping.

It has to add the whole card, although ports can be individually assigned to different VMs. For instance, from the screenshot below, I added lspci ID 03:00.0 to my test VM(and it retained the 03:00.0 ID in lspci under ubuntu), and I was able to add the other port(03:00.1) to another VM. Hopefully this helps others like me who are new to directpath and ESXi in general, and were considering purchasing hardware for directpath to do something similar with NICs.

Motherboard: Supermicro MBD-X8DTN+ / 2xIntel Xeon E5620 / 16GB DDR3
Chipset: ICH10R
BIOS/firmware: factory default as of 12/28/10
PCI card tested: Intel EXPI9402PT 10/ 100/ 1000Mbps PCI-Express PRO/1000 PT ... 6833106014 ... cfm?IPMI=O ... 6819117234

File comment: Picture of the device added to directpath configuration.
