Everything is possible, sure, but Linux and BSD have very
different implementations of the network stack, not to mention how drivers
are handled. Basically, you should be able to port the WRR code itself
pretty easily, but you'd still have to program the kernel hooks, and what
I'd call the underlying ALTQ machinery, both of which are rather
In that respect, you may want to take a look at the Mobile IP at
NUS webpage, (http://opensource.nus.edu.sg/projects/mobileip/), at some
point they were porting ALTQ to Linux, but I don't know what the current
status is. They may even have an implementation of WRR in there.
