ipfw rules plus dummynet should be able to do what you want. ipfw can
filter on the uid or gid of the process sending/receiving the packet, so
this should cause all non-root packets to get filtered through dummynet
pipe 1 (which you could configure to run at 90% of your true capacity):
ipfw add 400 skipto 402 ip from any to any uid root
ipfw add 401 pipe 1 ip from any to any
Hopefully ipfw will soon get the ability to use ALTQ which was recently
merged into -current, so you can do some more advanced limiting.
