ixgbevf: Set the netdev number of Tx queues
The driver was not setting the number of real Tx queues in the net_device structure. This caused some serious issues such as Tx hangs and extremely poor performance with some usages of the driver. The issue is best observed by running: iperf -c <host> -P <n> Where n is greater than one. The greater the value of n the more likely the problem is to show up.
