So here is a re-try.

PATCH 6/6 adds my simple idea not to prevent even nonsense configs.
It is optional.

This resend is redone against current net-next with slightly changed
patches 3/6 (check added in register_qdisc()) and 4/6 (teql_peek()
made nonfunctional), according to Patric's suggestions, I hope.

Thanks,
Jarek P.

PS: after this patchset only netem_enqueue() needs qdisc->requeue(),
but this will be handled by a separate patch.
