Motivation was to get the "kselftest -t net/forwarding:ethtool_mm.sh" test to work
without requiring additional manual step of increasing the TX channels.

Another issue is that all network interfaces (can be up to 4 on some devices) have to be
brought down if TX channel count needs to change.

I am not aware why this was not done from the beginning.
