Mostly it is a hack implemented to support multiple hardware queues
available in wireless devices.  It should be completely ignored by
users, but at this point there is no way for a user to eliminate it.
The kernel now has generic support for multiple hardware queues and
I hope to see that used to eliminate the need for this abomination.
We shall see.
