You can specify the tx_queue_len when you create the veth device,
if that can be your "default".

tx_queue_len ties too much with qdisc probably due to historical
reasons, ideally we should only specify the queue len via qdisc
interface since at least a per-device tx_queue_len doesn't make
much sense for those multiqueue or hierarchical qdisc's. It's hard
to change without breaking existing scripts/code.

Like David said, maybe you can add a new netdev flag saying
not to have any qdisc even when tx_queue_len !=0, or let each
device choose its default qdisc...
