Current netem uses a single queue, default tfifo.

Then if you change this tfifo by SFQ, you lose tfifo, and netem doesnt
work at all.

I claim we cannot remove tfifo.

After my patch, you now have :

1) An internal mandatory tfifo queue, to fulfill time_to_send

2) An optional qdisc (SFQ in your example), where packets are queued
once dequeued from tfifo at the right time (after netem delay/rate
respected), eventually a packet can finaly be delivered to device with a
_bigger_ delay than the one predicted in tfifo, because of trafic
shaping happening in this optional qdisc.

Full netem block :
