Please split this into 2 patches. One will introduce the new qdisc,
second will add offload capabilities.

I don't see a software implementation for this. Looks like you are
trying abuse tc subsystem to bypass kernel. Could you please explain
this? The golden rule is: implement in kernel, then offload.
