Yes, I do.
So far, I have hardware related parts working. I rely on skb->priority to
determine traffic class and select proper queue.
All this worth nothing if one can't do separate queues. qdisc assignment for
driver is not in driver's hands, so it can't do any assumptions. Generic
in-kernel support needed here. Stack should allow driver to request
additional Tx queues, providing some classifiers for each one. I tried to
imagine how to work it around, but there is no good solution without those
This mean, I will be able to deliver QoS support when network stack will make
