Description

( Please reference https://redmine.pfsense.org/issues/6830 & https://redmine.pfsense.org/issues/7607 ) Information below duplicated from these tickets. Testing environment on bottom of ticket. This is issue is still ongoing.
--------
cxgbe drivers support ALTq. cxl interface labels should support it:
https://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?query=altq&apropos=0&sektion=0&manpath=FreeBSD+8.3-RELEASE&arch=default&format=html

https://github.com/pfsense/pfsense/blob/master/src/etc/inc/interfaces.inc#L5649
Needs "cxl" interface added to allow traffic shaping on the Chelsio interfaces.


Tested on Chelsio T4 on Dell R210 ii Xeon E3-1220 V2

(This firewall does not have any interfaces assigned that are capable of using ALTQ traffic shaping.)

Jim Pingle (It's possible that either the man page is wrong or it's been disabled in our driver for stability reasons. I'll take it back out of the altq list.)

I put this ticket back in but, according to 8314 maybe altq has been disabled in the driver? So just adding to the src/etc/inc/interfaces.inc doesn't fix the issue. :(

Is there any possibility to get this working on T4's? Does it work on T5's and just not T4's? Or both?
