But how about adding it as an attribute of the mqprio which "knows" about the queue groupings?
See my answer below
This is true, the rate limiter is per 802.1Q traffic class, and the HW is using the UP to TC mapping when enforcing it. That's why it can't be added to mqprio, which is a group of queues and not 802.1Q traffic class.Does the rate limiter take into account the user priority to tc mapping or is it really just a group of queues with a rate limit? The code makes it look like it really is per 802.1Q traffic class.
