I'll comment on the documentation (since I edited it heavily) but will
leave some the other parts for Netanel to answer.

Hopefully it will still be true for quite a while. But you make a good
point, the overview here should stick with the technical details.

It's negotiated with the adapter via the admin queue, and it will vary
based on the capabilities of a particular adapter. See:

rc = ena_com_get_feature(ena_dev, &get_resp,
ENA_ADMIN_MAX_QUEUES_NUM);

in ena_com.c

I'll leave this to Netanel. A good amount of this comes from a unified

might need some massaging.

Argh! I thought I caught all of those.

Thanks for the review!
