We have to use the same TX queue for all packets for the same
connection flow (same src/dst IP address and ports) otherwise
we introduce reordering.

Herbert brought this up, now I have explicitly brought this up,
and you cannot ignore this issue.

You must not knowingly reorder packets, and using different TX
queues for packets within the same flow does that.
