I really tripped on the name "decoders_per_cpu", to a point where I had to
review the current code before looking at this patch.  I find the "_per_cpu"
part especially puzzling.  In the end the variable determines the amount of
decoders to instantiate for a specific queue...  

Couldn't it be just "decoders"?  Or maybe it just needs a little comment to
disambiguate things?

Thanks,
Mathieu
