    Isn't a very large fraction of outgoing network traffic driven from
    net_tx_action(), which doesn't execute in the context of the sending
    process? Or am I missing something?

    You claimed "In the most common case, the packet is not queued before
    it hits the qdisc so this takes away a lot of complexity and is very
    fast but should still be sufficient.". But is that really true on a
    system where the network is busy? (Which is after all exactly the case
    where you care about accurate traffic accounting/policing)
