I'll post it for official review shortly.

portmask IIRC is determined by the cpus you decide you want to service various
hardware queues.  you can select whatever cpus you want, so in a sense, the
portmask is entirely your decision.  If you want it to be optimal, you should
select a portmask where the cpus servicing your hardware are on the same numa
node as the NIC itself.  You should be able to determine the cpu numa node
locality via /sys/class/net/<iface>/device/local_cpus
