This function _NEVER_ set the number of RX queues beforehand,
therefore why are you adding an RX queue adjustment now?

Regardless of the reason, you must explain such a change, in
detail, in your commit message.

Your previous patch didn't do this, and I really am suspect as to
whether you functionally tested and verified this aspect of your
change at a ll.

Please don't "quietly" make undescribed changes like this. It's very
tiring to think that a patch has been adjusted to my liking and then
during review I find a grenade like this :-/
