Alexander, I guess you've seen my last messages/patches in this thread
and noticed that this __netif_schedule() problem is present both in
this RFC patch and sch_multiq: if skb isn't dequeued because of inner
tx_queue stopped state check, there is missing __netif_schedule()
before exit from qdisc_run().
