I was hoping it would work too. It seemed like it should have been the
answer since it definitely didn't seem right. Now it has me wondering
about some of the other code in the driver.

By any chance have you run anything like DPDK on any of the X722
interfaces on this system recently? I ask because it occurs to me that
if you had and it loaded something like a custom parsing profile it
could cause issues similar to this.

A debugging step you might try would be to revert back to my earlier
patch that only displayed the input mask instead of changing it. Once
you have done that you could look at doing a full power cycle on the
system by either physically disconnecting the power, or using the
power switch on the power supply itself if one is available. It is
necessary to disconnect the motherboard/NIC from power in order to
fully clear the global state stored in the device as it is retained
when the system is in standby.

What I want to verify is if the input mask that we have ran into is
the natural power-on input mask of if that is something that was
overridden by something else. The mask change I made should be reset
if the system loses power, and then it will either default back to the
value with the 6's if that is it's natural state, or it will match
what I had if it was not.

Other than that I really can't think up too much else. I suppose there
is the possibility of the NVM either setting up a DCB setting or
HREGION register causing an override that is limiting the queues to 1.
However, the likelihood of that should be really low.
