We also need to program HopIDs for adapter ports (PCIe, DP, NHI) in
order to enable a path. The "next_hop" from NULL port to an adapter port
tells the HopID a packet gets when it is routed to the adapter port and
the adapter port registers then are used to specify which HopID means
what (for PCIe there is only 8 but for DP there is 8 and 9, for NHI it
can be anything the service driver has negotiated).
