As Michael mentioned, set affinity and select queue will not work very
well when CPU IDs are not consecutive, this can happen with hot unplug.
Fix this bug by traversal the online CPUs, and create a per cpu variable
to find the mapping from CPU to the preferable virtual-queue.

V3->V4:
	move vq_index into virtnet_info	(Jason)
	change the mapping value when not setting affinity (Jason)
	address the comments about select_queue (Rusty)
Not Addressed yet:
	race between select_queue and set_channels need discuss more
	but not the same problem with this (Rusty)

Looks like ixgbe is trying to handling a similar issue recently by
trying to reuse XPS when the channels and cpus are not equal. I wonder
whether we can use the same method.
