The only reason I could think that you would need this that *right now*
taprio has pretty glaring oversight: that in the offload parameters each entry
'gate_mask' reference the "Traffic Class" (i.e. bit 0 is Traffic Class
0), and it really should be the HW queue.

I have a patch that does the conversion on taprio before talking to the
driver. Do you think it would help you avoid doing this on the driver
side?
