I meant "strategy for making the code reusable". Or something like that
anyway. I don't see the point in trying and then failing. Here we're
adding a completely different version of codel to the kernel - why?
What makes this version unusable for the original usage in
include/net/codel.h? Can't we replace that one with the newer version
and actually use the same file here?

Or - why bother with the header file to make it shareable, if we're not
even attempting to do that?
