Ask Andi ;-> Maybe ANK. I saw some code stubs in TCP (net-*) i think which
seem to be aware of this.

Hence the criteria i mentioned: "If you are doing this correctly".
How do you know you are doing it correctly? If the higher prio queue is
always full, then obvioulsy it is incorrect. Do rate control in user space
and see if the problem is still there.
