What makes you think that there is a problem with inserting a fragment
before the first one already in the queue? Should work perfectly well, as
far as I can see. The only somewhat tricky part is the overlaying of
ipq_next, ipq_rev and ipf_next, ipf_prev resp.

If you have any additional questions, feel free to ask.
