In RH8 (kernel 2.4), the queuing disciplines were configurable through netlink sockets. For an example of use, you may have a look at the source code of the tc tool (from iproute2 package).

An overview of netlink sockets is available at http://qos.ittc.ukans.edu/netlink/html/

I don't know if there are easier APIs on recent linux versions.
