It is puzzling. I ran it on several boxes, both multi queue and not, and
both single mq queues and multiple. But the code is clearly wrong. So
yeah, it's not sparc64 specific in any way. My initial thought was that
this was another issue related to sparse CPU ids, but that's not the
case. It's a plain bug, unfortunately.
