macvtap: Implement multiqueue for macvtap driver
Implement multiqueue facility for macvtap driver. The idea is that a macvtap device can be opened multiple times and the fd's can be used to register eg, as backend for vhost. Signed-off-by: Krishna Kumar <krkumar2@in.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
