Without CONFIG_SYSFS the multi-receive queues are not allocated, see below, and 
the variable real_num_rx_queues is not defined, so we skip this function.

In alloc_netdev_mqs(), file "net/core/dev.c":
#ifdef CONFIG_SYSFS
        dev->num_rx_queues = rxqs;
        dev->real_num_rx_queues = rxqs;
        if (netif_alloc_rx_queues(dev))
                goto free_all;
#endif

OK, I will move the #ifdef into hyperv_net.h.
