Meaning? Let me ask the question differently:
Do i need your sdk to use the features exposed or can i use something
like tc to set up the deficit rr or wred or the exposed classifiers
and associated actions?
Would your sdk (via user space direct programming) benefit because you
have pushed these pieces into the kernel?
