There is a hook in the tx path now (recently added)

if (static_key_false(&egress_needed)) {
skb = sch_handle_egress(skb, &rc, dev);
if (!skb)
goto out;
# endif

that allows pushing any policy you like for picking tx queues. It would
be better to use this mechanism. The hook runs 'tc' classifiers so
either write a new ./net/sch/cls_*.c for this or just use ebpf to stick
your policy in at runtime.

I'm out of the office for a few days but when I get pack I can test that
it actually picks the selected queue in all cases I know there was an
issue with some of the drivers using select_queue awhile back.
