This doesn't do active queue management yet, but it does help with
preventing legacy traffic from flooding the queues in a way that hurts
aggregated traffic. It also helps mitigate the impact of multicast
flooding, or flooding one particular station with traffic.

Next step ahead is moving that queueing to mac80211, I'm going to be
working on that soon.
