This is not a good idea. Simulator is intended to test the API that is
used by other drivers for real hardware. But not for experiments with
an otherwise "userless" API.

If you need to configure the number of queues for an already in-tree
driver, then just submit a patch for it. If you plan to submit a new
driver and you need an infrastructure for it, then include patches
with a new API into a series with the driver.

Yep, this would be a good solution at the moment.
