That may work maybe even add ipproto as a 3rd tuple; experiments will
tell - you need to be able to generate a random enough traffic pattern.
For example if the traffic pattern is always for your local host the
dstip may not be useful to the hash. 
You could always try the hash tests outside first; look at some of the
jenkins hashes in the kernel

possibly. Or you may wanna tie the NIC IRQ to a CPU.
