You mean apart from ingress qdisc?

So does it make a difference if you do:
I am almost (99%) sure it doesnt. I'll give you the 1%.
Most routers which preach ingress queues (there are very few in this
world, as i stated earlier) do it in the hardware not in a second level
queue. (In Linux packets move from H/ware NIC FIFO
-> DMA -> backlog_queue -> Devik's_ingress_queue_here -> egress_queue).
As you can see above, delaying them at the Devik's_ingress_queue_here or
egress_queue would not make a difference. This is a shared bus media and
you are adding more clutter. I know it's cool but there is no need for
Devik's_ingress_queue_here. tag the packets using ingress qdisc and treat
them accordingly at egress.
