The mechanism is not specific to fq_codel, it's a tc thing. You can
attach arbitrary tc filters which fq_codel will then use as a
classifier. http://lartc.org/howto/lartc.adv-filter.hashing.html has
some (fairly old) information on this, but I've never tried it in
practice with fq_codel so can't give you any more specific pointers.

An alternative, of course, is to try out cake. Jonathan did a
presentation on it at Battlemesh yesterday, which also has instructions
on how to obtain it:
