Hmm, looking into this, do we really need to check cl->leaf.q->q.qlen
in htb_activate() for pfifo_fast? htb_activate() is only called when
qdisc_enqueue() returns NET_XMIT_SUCCESS, so for pfifo_fast
that is always qlen!=0, right?

So something like below? It is ugly but should be sufficient to shut
up the warning.

        if (!cl->prio_activity) {
                cl->prio_activity = 1 << cl->prio;
