Hi all,

I noticed that enabling rxhash blocks the RX on my Macchiatobin. It
works fine with the 10G ports (the RX rate goes 4x up) but it
completely kills the gigabit interface.

I've bisected and it seems that this commit causes the issue. I tried
to revert it on nex-next as a second test, but the code has changed a
lot much since, generating too much conflicts.
Can you have a look into this?

Thanks,
