Something along those lines. IIUC htb offload as admission control for
VF representors is not a thing today, so since devlink rate exists the
lowest amount of duplication would be teaching it about queues.

Presumably you can't admission control at a granularity higher than 
a queue, so grouping queues should cover all use cases.
