In DPAA2 we have a boot time configurable system in which the user can select
for each interface how many queues and how many traffic classes it needs.

The driver picks these up from firmware and configures the traffic class
distribution only if there is more than one requested.
With one TC the behavior of the driver is exactly as before.
