> Previously auto load balance did not trigger a reassignment when there was
> any cross-numa polling as an rxq could be polled from a different numa after
> reassign and it could impact estimates.
> In the case where there is only one numa with pmds available, the same
> numa will always poll before and after reassignment, so estimates are valid.
> Allow PMD auto load balance to trigger a reassignment in this case.

> - Same logic as v1, combined two "ifs" as per David suggestion
> - Updated comments/logs
> - Updated the doc note that said it will not work for cross NUMA to
> include new condition
> - Kept Eelco's Ack, as no logic changed
