Patrick, you are making too strong a statement. Take a step back:
When you put a packet on the DMA ring, are you ever going to take it
away at some point before it goes to the wire?

In the general case, they are totaly useless.
They are  useful when theres contention/congestion. Even in a shared

And if there is contention, the qdisc scheduler will do the right thing.
