stephen hemminger - March 18, 2009, 6:20 p.m.
Some virtual devices like VLAN's or bridges by default have not transmit queue.
In order to do queuing disciplines on these devices a queue must be added
by setting transmit queue length. The kernel allows doing this at any time, but
setting the queue length value is not enough. Setting the queue length does
not create the transmit queue (going from 0 to non-zero) or destroy it
(setting to zero); the queue is only created (or destroyed) when device
comes up (or goes down).

This patch handles this be doing the necessary activations.
