Have you considered a switchdev-based driver for multi-port devices?
What you ask of TSN configuration is currently doable with switch switchdev for
VLANs and other similar networking functionality.

Instead of rewriting this from scratch, we not extend the currect TC and
switchdev functionality for that ?
