Writing a modern policer in ebpf is feasible. it's got nsec
timestamping, counters, threads, lots of potential parallelism. Loops
that have to be carefully bound. The worst possible config api. A nice
statistics export system.

Classic policers use token buckets, but anyone up for codel,
time_per_byte, framing awareness and deficits, and a little aqm?
