NICs and Distributed virtual switches

I have a Dell m1000e blade chassis and a bunch of dell M630 blades. I also have two dell MXL switches in the blade. Today I learned that the M630 blades have the intel adapters. The intel adapter drops 1 interface on each MXL switch but has no method of providing virtual interfaces or in the Cisco UCS world-vNICs. I am trying to introduce this into an existing VMware environment. They have the HP Chassis now and each blade has 6 interfaces. (2) for Management, (2) for vMotion, and (2) for VM traffic/port groups). they are using 3 separate distributed virtual switches. for each pair of interfaces. My question is.... with the current dell configuration... can I assign multiple distributed switches to 1 interface? IE have the two interfaces trunk and attach the same two interfaces to 3 distributed switches? I have a couple options but this would probably be the easiest as I wouldn't need to reconfigure the existing prod environment to get this thing online. Other option is to replace the intel cards with broadcomm which allow for vNICs.

the daughter card presents two physical interfaces into the fabric. 1 to each Switch so a total of 2. I believe I answered my own question. You cannot assign an interface to multiple vDS.
