Hi Alan,

This looks like a very good idea but I think the patch must also cover adequate changes of test/test/test_red.c file.
What range of fraction/max_threshold values did you find to work correctly with no further code mods?

Subject: [PATCH] sched: make RED scaling configurable

From: Alan Dewar <alan.dewar@att.com>

The RED code stores the maximum threshold is a 32-bit integer as a pseudo fixed-point floating number with 10 fractional bits.  Twelve other bits are used to encode the filter weight, leaving just 10 bits for the queue length.  This limits the maximum queue length supported by RED queues as 1024 packets.

Move the "hard" definitions from red.h into config/common_base so that RED scaling can be configured during build.
