In that respect, I have a very naive question... ECN is to be handled by
the sender and the receiver of a TCP flow. What does a queuing scheme
have to do with that except for marking the CE bit?
Is that the struct field corresponding to this CE bit in the different
BSDs that causes a problem? Something related?
Sorry if this question sounds dumb, but end-to-end congestion control and
per-hop scheduling and dropping seem pretty orthogonal to me.
P.S.: Quick auxiliary question (I could look it up by myself, but I'm
too lazy :-): does the RFC in question specify anything about ECN nonces?
