Actually, there is much less users of ->peek. Do you mean to always check
for NULL before using? It was meant mainly for these non-work-conserving
qdisc in case patch 6/6 isn't merged. Of course, IMHO it should be enough
to implement this always (while merging), but this code above could be
misleading what is optional/mandatory. (Please make it clear which way do
you prefer and I'll redo, no problem.)
