Yes, I should not have related these two things, especially without
proper experimentation. In other implementations, we have used 
techniques such as multiple  Tx queues to increase parallelism but 
path selection is done within the driver to get the benefit of the parallelism for all peers.
We need to see what method suites best for sunvnet, we hope to know
more once we investigate all methods available. 

In case of custom ndo_select_queue() method, we need to see if there
are methods to deal with ports dynamically added/removed too.
