Really? It is dubius idea. If keepalives will be lost,
link will fail. And they will be lost, if share queue with data.

No, Alan. I am ready to give up, but it is very dubiuos.
dev_queue_xmit is used for data. It cannot be used before
link setup is finished, because there is no link yet.

I am sorry, but if CBQ is attached to the device, these
guys who implemented keepalives in this manner risk to drop
their control data to a blackhole or to police them to death.

It is interesting also, how Cisco HDLC keepalives look in tcpdump 8)
