Per-netdevice qos map is exactly what we are looking for. I think it
wasn't even considered because the layering is obviously wrong. Stuff
like this really belongs to TC.

Having them on bridge_slave would IMHO not solve much, besides the
layering violations :) If you use anything besides vlan_filtering
bridges, you have X places to configure compatibly. Which is not great
for either offload or configuration.

Given there's one piece of HW to actually do the prioritization, it
seems obvious to aim at having a single source of the mapping in Linux.
DCB or TC both fit the bill here.

Maybe we need to figure out how to tweak TC to make this stuff easier to
configure and offload...
