Set max rate-limit using sysfs file /sys/class/net/<interface>/qos/ratelimit

To set, enter a space separated list of values in units of 100Mbps.  For
example to set ratelimit of 5G to TC0 and 10G for the reset on eth2 issue:
echo 50 100 100 100 100 100 100 100 100>  /sys/class/net/eth2/qos/ratelimit

We used sysfs since max bw isn't part of the ETS / DCBX NL support, and we're
open to other suggestions to add generic support for max bw, e.g add call to

Its not really part of DCB so adding it to DCBnl seems a bit forced. But how
about adding it as an attribute of the mqprio which "knows" about the queue
See my answer below

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.
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.
