simple setup, enter globals & thats it. services, netmask, interface, mac all empty. just globals, downlink is broken.

if this cant be fixed then the fast classifier should be auto disabled when qos is on, or provide the user a toggle to enable fast classifier or not, with a disclaimer is breaks qos. then everyone is happy

are you supposed to post build number, router, and Linux kernel that you are currently seeing this on?

Normally, QoS on downstream does not make any sense in most cases. To reduce bufferbloat, you should limit ur upstream, downstream may be limited by your provider. So that QCA SFE patch should be able to work with QoS, because QoS is what throughput limits because of cpu usage. As you mentioned, maybe it should be possible to let the user prefer if that patch should be enabled or not, but if QoS is enabled, to disable that patch is nonsense to me. @brainslayer, could you maybe insert a toggle button at the QoS screen, like "disabled", "enabled" and "enabled with fastpath"? That would be a great enhancement for everyone because its possible to decide what to use.

qos downstream makes alot of sense & it does reduce bufferbloat. a toggle should not be ln qos page it will confuse the user, on services page or something. cause currently the patch is broken anyway, crashing wifi, hanging routers, slow gui

Patch seems to work really good with OpenWRT / LEDE. People there report good results. Maybe problems here are DDWRT only.
