Yes, I should do this in its caller. I will change it, thanks.

The memset() is in two different functions, one for xxx_basic_cpu(), and the

other for xxx_queue_cpu().

It only fixes the 'sch->q.qlen' not set for NOLOCK child qdisc. But as 
Dave said,

I should split that into an individual patch. So I will change this and 
mark it

for net-next.


Thanks
