Thanks, that worked! They were all default set to "000" for igb, but
set correctly/like-above for ixgbe (strange).

Did:

$ export DEV=eth1 ; export NR_CPUS=11 ; \
 for txq in `seq 0 $NR_CPUS` ; do \
   file=/sys/class/net/${DEV}/queues/tx-${txq}/xps_cpus \
   mask=`printf %X $((1<<$txq))`
   test -e $file && sudo sh -c "echo $mask > $file" && \
   grep . -H $file ;\
 done
