Agreed, this is a transcription error on my part between my dev box and
this tree.

I explained this in a previous response, and you seemed to be ok with
the explanation.  Can you elaborate if this is still an issue?

The user can enable this by using TC filters.  I do understand what you
mean that PRIO's behavior somewhat changes because of how the queues
turn off and on, but how is this different than today?  Today, if the
queue on the NIC shuts down, all the PRIO queues are down.  This way
it's actually helping get traffic out.  I don't see how the user can
control which queue is shut down; that is a function of how congested
the network is.  So if I can clarify what you're saying, are you asking
that the user actually setup the band to queue mapping?  Because if so,
I don't see how that would help since queues today don't have any
priority, and you would have no control which one stops over another
one.
