I was thinking of the stuff in core/cq.c - but it also doesn't have
automatic comp_vector balancing. It is the logical place to put
something like that though..

An API to manage a bundle of CPU affine CQ's is probably what most
ULPs really need.. (it makes little sense to create a unique CQ for
every QP)

alloc_bundle()
get_cqn_for_flow(bundle)
alloc_qp()
destroy_qp()
put_cqn_for_flow(bundle)
destroy_bundle();

Let the core code balance the cqn's and allocate (shared) CQ
resources.
