This is a well known problem and there have been several attempts to
address it over the years (a long time ago at Google I implemented a
horrible hack called "hold queue" that put a parallelized queue in
front of HTB. This eliminated the lock contention, but not without
side effects).

Now there's a new scheduler proposed by some Googlers called Carousel
that promises scalable host traffic shaping
Looks like they didn't implement a kernel Qdisc, but might be
interesting for someone to look into...
