Some of us are dealing with huge HTB hierarchies, so adding default fifo
in the dump will add more data pumped from the kernel.

BwE [1] for instance dumps qdisc/classes every 5 seconds.

I guess we'll need to not pull this patch in our kernels.

This reminds me of an HTB patch to avoid dumping rate estimates for HTB.

I will send it today.
