It does remain a wrapper, but both functions are used. It doesn't have 
to be this way, but I wanted to avoid duplicating code and I didn't see 
a better layout.

sfq_q_destroy is used in sfq_q_init if a kcalloc fails. sfq_q_init knows 
nothing about "struct Qdisc *sch", so it can't call sfq_destroy.

sfq_destroy is still marked as the destroy function in sfq_qdisc_ops.
