Hmm. I remember that thread. I thought we'd basically resolved that
issue (45% of the time spent in fq_codel_drop under udp flood),
back then, with eric adding the batch drop fix to fq_codel itself:

See commit: https://osdn.net/projects/android-x86/scm/git/kernel/commits/9d18562a227874289fda8ca5d117d8f503f1dcca

which fixed up the problem beautifully:


So if we've been carrying this darn patch for the ath10k vs something
that we'd actually fixed elsewhere in the stack, for over a year,
