Missing description.

I had a very detailed description with performance numbers and an 
affinity hints example with before/after tables. I don't want to get 
them lost.

We don't really use this 'hops' iterator. We always pass 0 (not a 
valuable input...), and we do not care about its final value. Probably 
it's best to hide it from the user into the macro.

This logic is typical. Other drivers would also want to use it.
It must be introduced as a service/API function, if not by the sched 
topology, then at least by the networking subsystem.
Jakub, WDYT?
