Subject: [PATCH net-next] pkt_sched: avoid requeues if possible

From: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@...gle.com>

With BQL being deployed, we can more likely have following behavior :

We dequeue a packet from qdisc in dequeue_skb(), then we realize target
tx queue is in XOFF state in sch_direct_xmit(), and we have to hold the
skb into gso_skb for later.

This shows in stats (tc -s qdisc dev eth0) as requeues.

Problem of these requeues is that high priority packets can not be
dequeued as long as this (possibly low prio and big TSO packet) is not
removed from gso_skb.

At 1Gbps speed, a full size TSO packet is 500 us of extra latency.

In some cases, we know that all packets dequeued from a qdisc are
for a particular and known txq :

- If device is non multi queue
- For all MQ/MQPRIO slave qdiscs

This patch introduces a new qdisc flag, TCQ_F_ONETXQUEUE to mark
this capability, so that dequeue_skb() is allowed to dequeue a packet
only if the associated txq is not stopped.

This indeed reduce latencies for high prio packets (or improve fairness
with sfq/fq_codel), and almost remove qdisc 'requeues'.
