net: Add alloc_netdev_mqs function
Added alloc_netdev_mqs function which allows the number of transmit and receive queues to be specified independenty. alloc_netdev_mq was changed to a macro to call the new function. Also added alloc_etherdev_mqs with same purpose. Signed-off-by: Tom Herbert <therbert@google.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
