Subject: [PATCH 6/6] [IPROUTE2]: Change the rate table calc of transmit
	cost to use upper bound value

commit 2e3edbef7913ac43899c8258ee59d9032778cee1

    [IPROUTE2]: Change the rate table calc of transmit cost to use upper bound value.
    Patrick McHardy, Cite: 'its better to overestimate than underestimate
    to stay in control of the queue'.
    Illustrating the rate table array:
     Legend description
       rtab[x]   : Array index x of rtab[x]
       xmit_sz   : Transmit size contained in rtab[x] (normally transmit time)
       maps[a-b] : Packet sizes from a to b, will map into rtab[x]
    Current/old rate table mapping (cell_log:3):
     rtab[0]:=xmit_sz:0  maps[0-7]
     rtab[1]:=xmit_sz:8  maps[8-15]
     rtab[2]:=xmit_sz:16 maps[16-23]
     rtab[3]:=xmit_sz:24 maps[24-31]
     rtab[4]:=xmit_sz:32 maps[32-39]
     rtab[5]:=xmit_sz:40 maps[40-47]
     rtab[6]:=xmit_sz:48 maps[48-55]
    New rate table mapping, with kernel cell_align support.
     rtab[0]:=xmit_sz:8  maps[0-8]
     rtab[1]:=xmit_sz:16 maps[9-16]
     rtab[2]:=xmit_sz:24 maps[17-24]
     rtab[3]:=xmit_sz:32 maps[25-32]
     rtab[4]:=xmit_sz:40 maps[33-40]
     rtab[5]:=xmit_sz:48 maps[41-48]
     rtab[6]:=xmit_sz:56 maps[49-56]
    New TC util on a kernel WITHOUT support for cell_align
     rtab[0]:=xmit_sz:8 maps[0-7]
     rtab[1]:=xmit_sz:16 maps[8-15]
     rtab[2]:=xmit_sz:24 maps[16-23]
     rtab[3]:=xmit_sz:32 maps[24-31]
     rtab[4]:=xmit_sz:40 maps[32-39]
     rtab[5]:=xmit_sz:48 maps[40-47]
     rtab[6]:=xmit_sz:56 maps[48-55]
