Its not really part of DCB so adding it to DCBnl seems a bit forced. But how
about adding it as an attribute of the mqprio which "knows" about the queue
groupings?

Does the rate limiter take into account the user priority to tc mapping or
is it really just a group of queues with a rate limit? The code makes it
look like it really is per 802.1Q traffic class.
