I think it would be best if you would start posting patches
to add the missing features (without the hash changes) to SFQ,
if you're quick this may already go in during the 2.6.23 merge
window. My changes are mostly independant of yours, if there
are any clashes the one who goes last will just have to rediff
their patches :)

Since you need to pass additional parameters to SFQ for your
changes, have a look at my rtnetlink compat attribute patch:
