Alternatively, I think we might be able to eliminate the use of
flow_keys and flow_dissect from the qdisc code altogether. It looks
like this is only being used to determine a hash over the addresses,
ports, and protocol so I am thinking that we can just call
skb_get_hash for that. Will try to post some patches soon.
