Unfortunately, it is. We have previously built our trees by setting marks with iptables
and matching the masks with tc and the u32 matcher, but we got a rather big performance
impact as soon as the number of users grow. The target platform are WiFi access points.
By using the proposed patch, the performance stays nearly constant at a growing number
of users.
