These patches look good to me. About 6/6, I'm still thinking we
might want to prevent certain kinds of nonsensical configurations
for simplicity. Its a bit similar to the multiq stuff, a lot of
these complications came from the fact that non-work-conserving
qdiscs, which require a global view, are treated similar to work-
conserving ones. I don't have a good scheme worked out though,
so for now using your patch seems OK too.

Assuming work-conserving qdiscs are used with netem, the currently
code will always send out a reorder packet immediately. This behaviour
is trivial to implement without ->requeue. The problematic case is
non-work-conserving inner qdiscs, but that doesn't seem important
at all since you'd usually add it as parent of netem, which still
