I think this queue element is inserted at the discretion of the
application only when it puts the element in a thread bin. Do you mean
to say, this queue can be created internally by the element? If so,i
can use this queue for storing the buffers to be queued to the
If no such support exists, i am planning to do it this way. 
- create a FIFO
- when a buffer is received, add a reference to it
- add it to the FIFO
There will be a seperate GThread or Posix thread which keeps on
removing the buffers from FIFO and queue it to the hardware. Is this
