Only NIU allows real detailed control over queue selection and
stuff like that, because the hardware has a real TCAM for
packet matching and packets which match in TCAM entries can
steer to different collections of queues.

We have ethtool interfaces for this (ETHTOOL_GRXCLS*), so you can
change it.

For most other chips we only have interfaces for modifying the
RX hashing algorithm or what the RX hash covers, stuff like
that.

See also ETHTOOL_GRXFH, ETHTOOL_SRXFH, ETHTOOL_SRXNTUPLE, and
ETHTOOL_GRXNTUPLE, the latter two of which were added for Intel
NICs.
