	Is there a way to avoid starvation in a streams based multiplexor.
I have the following scenario:
	I have 'n' upstreams and 1 downstream in the multiplexor. The
multiplexor multiplexes data from  downstream to one of the 'n'
upstreams. Suppose one of the upstreams becomes full, the flow control
eventually propagates to the multiplexor and the remaining (n-1) upstreams
are put to starvation even if their queues are not full.  Is there any way
solve this problem.
