Yes. At first I've thought this would need quite a lot of work, but
it seems, there could be probably used something very simple too,
like e.g. a 'dummy' sched switcher, which after replacing as a root
the old qdisc and knowing the pointer to the new one could simply
call for dequeing the old one and the new one for everything else.
Then, after completely dequeuing it would call destroy for the old
qdisc and probably switch itself with the new one as a root. If this
new one were created temporarily e.g. on a dummyX dev, and the switch
qdisc added to dummyY (as a temporary holder) with ethX and dummyX as
parameters, it seems this could be done without any API changes.
(But, of course, something more sophisticated should be even better.)
