Network classifier cgroup
-------------------------

The Network classifier cgroup provides an interface to
tag network packets with a class identifier (classid).

The Traffic Controller (tc) can be used to assign
different priorities to packets from different cgroups.

Creating a net_cls cgroups instance creates a net_cls.classid file.
This net_cls.classid value is initialized to 0.

You can write hexadecimal values to net_cls.classid; the format for these
values is 0xAAAABBBB; AAAA is the major handle number and BBBB
is the minor handle number.
Reading net_cls.classid yields a decimal result.

Example:
mkdir /sys/fs/cgroup/net_cls
mount -t cgroup -onet_cls net_cls /sys/fs/cgroup/net_cls
mkdir /sys/fs/cgroup/net_cls/0
echo 0x100001 >  /sys/fs/cgroup/net_cls/0/net_cls.classid
	- setting a 10:1 handle.

cat /sys/fs/cgroup/net_cls/0/net_cls.classid
1048577

configuring tc:
tc qdisc add dev eth0 root handle 10: htb

tc class add dev eth0 parent 10: classid 10:1 htb rate 40mbit
 - creating traffic class 10:1

tc filter add dev eth0 parent 10: protocol ip prio 10 handle 1: cgroup
