we are already using filters. yes. its just that cake is acting always 
as root and we have different sorts of qos configurations. so you have 
wan. but we may have multiple lan interfaces with individual qos 
settings. the same for mac / ip based user settings. so in fact we need 
to create a individual qdisc for each of these setting types in worst 
case, but in that case we cannot take in account the global available 
bandwidth anymore.

will do after i have taken out specific mods for my kernels again. its 
really nothing much. just some kernel minor versions for 3.18 and 4.4 
got some features backported which collided with the cobalt header.
i'm now already ahead with doing a out of tree version of fq_codel_fast 
for multiple kernel versions
