Hi,

The point is that RXHASH works fine on all interfaces, but on the
gigabit one (eth2 usually).
And on the 10 gbit interface is very very effective, the throughput
goes 4x when enabled, so it would be a big drawback to disable it on
all interfaces.

Honestly I don't have any 2.5 gbit hardware to test it on eth3, so I
don't know if rxhash actually only works on the first interface of a
unit (so eth0 and eth1),
or if it just doesn't work on the gigabit one.

If someone could test it on the 2.5 gbit port, this will be helpful.
