The receive indirection table comes from RSS configuration.
The RSS configuration is already visible via ethtool so adding sysfs support
for that is redundant.

The transmit indirection table comes from the host, and is unique
to this driver. So adding a sysfs file for that makes sense.

The format of sysfs files is that in general there should be
one value per file.

One other possibility would be to make these as attributes under each
queues. But that is harder.
