In previous implement the number of queue in each TC is same, now, we
allow that the number of queue in each TC is different.

The maximum number of queues is defined by 'alloc_tqps', not 
preallocated queues. The behavior on setup tc of HNS3 is same as other 
driver.

'alloc_tqps' in HNS3 has the same means as 'num_queue_pairs' in i40e below
if (vsi->num_queue_pairs <
	    (mqprio_qopt->qopt.offset[i] + mqprio_qopt->qopt.count[i])) {
		return -EINVAL;
}
