So you want to use only 5 queues per VF when TNS is enabled, is it ??
There are 4096 RSS indices in total, for each VF you can use max 32.
I guess you wanted to set no of hash bits to 5 instead of table size.

SATHA>>> We enabled 8 queues for VF. Yes Macro name misleads it has to be hash bits, will change this in next version

Didn't get why you moved this structure to the end of file.
Looks like an unnecessary modification.
SATHA>>> Previously we have some dependency, we look into this, and address in next verison

So what if driver is built-in instead of module, I can't use TNS is it ?
SATHA>>> Still you can enable this special features by passing boot argument "nicpf.num_vfs=X"

Why 129 ??
RBDR minimum size is 8K buffers, why you want to assert BP when still ~4K buffers are available. Isn't 4K a huge number to start asserting backpressure ?
SATHA>>> As CQ count was 4K entries, I used same BP value for both, will address this in next version
