The new interface you propose makes things inconsistent, since we have
two separate configuration paths (sysfs and ethtool), and it would seem
better to have per-queue awareness in ethtool, since there is a whole
bunch of other parameters that could be configured on a per-queue basis.

Have you tried to extend existing ethtool interfaces to cover the need
for multiple queues?
