I was specifically talking about one MPI process here -- it can detect
that it finds multiple adapters and they have different receive_queues

As for different processes having different receive_queues values,
yep, we're kinda hosed there at the moment. This is what I was
referring to in my first mail by "it will have scalability
issues" (adding info to the modex). I think we just say for v1.3 that
it's not supported and come back to the issue in v1.4.
