We already have a per-device limit, in qdisc.

If you want to monitor several tcp sessions, I urge you use a controller
for that. Like codel or fq_codel.

Experiments show that limiting to two TSO packets in qdisc per tcp flow
is enough to stop insane qdisc queueing, without impact on throughput
for people wanting fast tcp sessions.

Thats not solving the more general problem of having 1000 competing
