> Hi Georgios- I’m also donating tonight to making some progress on this, so let’s see what we can come up with. :) This is actually the first time I’ve had to compile OpenWRT- my VM ran out of memory the first time, but my laptop's fans have been on full blast for 10 minutes now so it looks like all’s well.

Ideally I’d like to be able to recompile sch_cake.ko after the system is running and not have to rebuild an OpenWRT image every time I make a change, in case I want to experiment with the code, so I hope that’s possible. I worked with C back in the day, but with rather different tooling so at the moment I feel like my hands are tied behind my back- hoping that changes. :)

May I direct your attention to https://git.openwrt.org/?p=openwrt/staging/ldir.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/cakepatches

A selection of patches including my hack workaround…which you can choose to include/exclude from your test builds… as well as Toke’s ‘extra info’ patch to see what netlink stats blocks are being returned.
