Yep, but what do you do if you have 64 TX queues, each one having
different BQL limits ? This looks like a NP problem when you also have
millions of tcp flows.

Basically BQL limit is more a sign of local host being able to drain TX
completions fast or not.

Here at Google, we have a very tiny queue of at most 2 packets per flow,
and srtt being in usec units gives us a very dynamic signal, based on
end to end measures.

I am experimenting moving TSQ processing from tasklet to workqueue,
because we need faster response to {soft}irq when we so often enter
TCP stack.
