/*
 * sch_plug.c Queue traffic until an explicit release command
 *
 *             This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or
 *             modify it under the terms of the GNU General Public License
 *             as published by the Free Software Foundation; either version
 *             2 of the License, or (at your option) any later version.
 *
 * There are two ways to use this qdisc:
 * 1. A simple "instantaneous" plug/unplug operation, by issuing an alternating
 *    sequence of TCQ_PLUG_BUFFER & TCQ_PLUG_RELEASE_INDEFINITE commands.
 *
 * 2. For network output buffering (a.k.a output commit) functionality.
 *    Output commit property is commonly used by applications using checkpoint
 *    based fault-tolerance to ensure that the checkpoint from which a system
 *    is being restored is consistent w.r.t outside world.
 *
 *    Consider for e.g. Remus - a Virtual Machine checkpointing system,
 *    wherein a VM is checkpointed, say every 50ms. The checkpoint is replicated
 *    asynchronously to the backup host, while the VM continues executing the
 *    next epoch speculatively.
 *
 *    The following is a typical sequence of output buffer operations:
 *       1.At epoch i, start_buffer(i)
 *       2. At end of epoch i (i.e. after 50ms):
 *          2.1 Stop VM and take checkpoint(i).
 *          2.2 start_buffer(i+1) and Resume VM
 *       3. While speculatively executing epoch(i+1), asynchronously replicate
 *          checkpoint(i) to backup host.
 *       4. When checkpoint_ack(i) is received from backup, release_buffer(i)
 *    Thus, this Qdisc would receive the following sequence of commands:
 *       TCQ_PLUG_BUFFER (epoch i)
 *       .. TCQ_PLUG_BUFFER (epoch i+1)
 *       ....TCQ_PLUG_RELEASE_ONE (epoch i)
 *       ......TCQ_PLUG_BUFFER (epoch i+2)
 *       ........
