Did you make some tries? E.g. after mapping certain txqs to CPU1, when
using them was mvneta_tx() executing only on this CPU? Or it rather
means that the irq will hit according to the mapping? As far as I know
the HW, the latter should be true, which would mean the real XPS with
this controller is impossible and the maximum we can control is the

I think it may be worth to unmask TX irqs on all cpus, so all percpu
napi's would be able to read tx_cause and process sent packets. I'm
looking forward to your opinion.
