parentr8169: Fix sleeping function called during get_stats64, v2 (diff)
xen-netback: respect user provided max_queues
Originally that parameter was always reset to num_online_cpus during module initialisation, which renders it useless. The fix is to only set max_queues to num_online_cpus when user has not provided a value.
