A pair of CQs is created for each xprtrdma transport. One transport
instance is created per NFS mount point.

Both Shirley Ma and Steve Wise have observed that the adapter
interrupt workload sticks with a single MSI-X and CPU core unless
manual steps are taken to move it to other CPUs. This tends to limit
performance once the interrupt workload consumes an entire core.

Sagi Grimwald suggested one way to get better dispersal of
interrupts is to use the completion vector argument of the
ib_create_cq() API to assign new CQs to different adapter ingress
queues. Currently, xprtrdma sets this argument to 0 unconditionally,
which leaves all xprtrdma CQs consuming the same small pool of
resources.

Each CQ will still be nailed to one completion vector.  This won't help
a "single mount point" workload, but when multiple mount points are in
play, the RDMA provider will see to it that adapter interrupts are
better spread over available resources.

We also take a little trouble to stay off of vector 0, which is used
by many other kernel RDMA consumers such as IPoIB.
