Will do.

I suppose that makes more sense.  TG3 only has at-most 4 RSS queues, so
there really isn't much difference.  Your idea places more of the
traffic in the first RSS queue, which has a slight performance
advantage.  Thanks for making me rethink this. :)

Will do.

Right.  This isn't needed.

Could you elaborate on this?  I'm confused because I can't figure out
how returning half of an indirection table could be useful.
