This is doable with the "tc" component of the "iproute2" kernel, and features
found in the stock kernel under
"Networking Options" / " QoS and/or fair queueing"
See the help text for those kernel options for pointers to documentation
and further references.
iptables can help classifying packets for processing with "tc", but iptables
does not itself manage queueing and priorities.
