So I recreated the first packet you listed via text2pcap, replayed it
on my test system via tcpreplay, updated my configuration to 12
queues, and used the 2 hash keys you listed. I ended up seeing the
traffic bounce between queues 4 and 8 with an X710 I had to test with
when I was changing the key value.

Unfortunately I don't have an X722 to test with. I'm suspecting that
there may be some difference in the RSS setup, specifically it seems
like values in the PFQF_HENA register were changed for the X722 part
that may be causing the issues we are seeing.

I will see if I can get someone from the networking division to take a
look at this since I don't have access to the part in question nor a
datasheet for it so I am not sure if I can help much more.

Thanks.
