I agree w/ you. I'm studyng a lot of QoS and I stopped w/ IMQ x dummy.

From rom gname : . Jamal
explained differences betwen IMQ x dummy. Like you I prefer not patch

I know that's not a netfilter stuff but it's RELATED w/ it 8).
Could you give some hints about your solution ? how-to/tutorial or other

thanks in advanced
