New Revision: 195818

  mxge's tunable hw.mxge.rss_hash_type cannot be set from the
  loader, because it uses a reserved suffix (_type).  Fix
  this by removing the "_" and renaming the tunable to
  hw.mxge.rss_hashtype.  The old (rss_hash_type) tunable is
  still fetched, in case people load the driver via scripts.
  When both are present in the kernel environment,
  the new value (hw.mxge.rss_hashtype) overrides the old
