For 1) we don't update qdisc's when changing tx queues, it should not
be hard to call ->attach() in netif_set_real_num_tx_queues(). But it is
not easy either, because mq_attach() merely attaches default qdisc's,
let's say if you already have 4 non-default qdisc's in your case, you
probably want to just duplicate 4 more when growing to 8. IMHO, this
is not a bug, it is just inconvenient.

For 2), I do not think it is a bug, as you can think noop as a deleted
