Even though the NIC configuration seems to allow for different values,
the rest of the driver assumes that the values are equal and things will
likely break if they aren't.  This is why the ethtool service
ionic_set_channels() only allows the user to change the Combined value,
and not the individual rx or tx values.

If you really want to tweak this, a better change might be to use the
min of ntxqs and nrxqs, and maybe add a warning log message that they
are configured with different values.
