[Intel-wired-lan] [RFC 1/4] net: support per queue tx_usecs in sysfs

From: Kan Liang <kan.liang at intel.com>

Network devices usually have many queues. Each queue has its own
tx_usecs options. Currently, we can only set all the queues with same
value by ethtool. This patch expose the tx_usecs in sysfs. So the user
can set/get per queue coalesce parameter tx_usecs by sysfs.

+Per Queue interrupt moderation:
+=============================
+
+The interrupt moderation mechanism, which implemented by HW, employs
+a series of timers to limit the number of interrupts it generates.
+TX queue absolute delay timer can be set to a microseconds value with
+
+/sys/class/net/<dev>/queues/tx-<n>/tx_usecs
+
+For the device which doesn't support per queue interrupt moderation,
+it shows "N/A".
