I seem to have discovered the cause of the problem in the old thread,
so I suggest we wait and see whether anyone offers up a proper
solution to this regression before we rush to completely disable
this feature.

I would suggest with a high degress of confidence based on my
research that prior to the offending commit (895586d5dc32), rx
hashing was working fine, distributing interrupts across the cores.
