Dear All,

just as a side-note. I believe that ACK filtering is one more application that directly profits from flow-queueing (as the set of packets to compare with is already separated out from the set of all queued packets), as one needs to collect ACKs according to their 4-Tuples which FQ does naturally. 

Best Regards
