So I think we'd be looking for:

32a8440 xen-netfront: respect user provided max_queues
4c82ac3 xen-netback: respect user provided max_queues
ca88ea1 xen-netfront: update num_queues to real created

which certainly resolves things such that the workarounds work, and I think
will also fix the default case such that it works with up to 32 vcpus
(although it will consume all the grants and only get 31/32 queues).

Does that sound correct?

As Annie said, we may still want to consider what a sensible default max
queues would be.
