I'm going to change the bulking "budget" from 8 packet to 7 packets,
based on my netperf-wrapper test.

I've designed some tests for the tool "netperf-wrapper" that tries to
measure the HoL blocking effect.  I've turned down the link speed to
100Mbit/s on driver igb.  And uses a single TXQ setup
(cmdline: ethtool -L eth1 combined 1).

I can now show some kind of HoL blocking effect.  The strange part is
the HoL effect only occurs above 8 packets, 7 packet and below show no
bad effect of this bulking patch.

Results 100Mbit/s test qdisc_prio_hol, latency in high prio band:
 * GSO: stable average on 2.23ms
 * TSO: varies between min 4.13ms to 4.41ms (range 0.28ms)
 * No bulking: stable average on 1.71ms (3x outliners on 1.95ms)
 * Bulking(8): varies between 1.71ms to 1.95ms (range 0.24ms)
 * Bulking(7): stable average on 1.71ms (1x outliner  on 1.95ms)
 * Bulking(6): stable average on 1.71ms (3x outliners on 1.91ms)
 * Bulking(5): stable average on 1.71ms (1x outliner  on 1.91ms)
 * Bulking(5): stable average on 1.71ms (1x outliner  on 1.91ms)
 * Bulking(4): stable average on 1.71ms (0x outliner)

Bulking(8) the calculation:
 * Added delay were 0.24ms (1.95 - 1.71ms) corrosponding to 3000 bytes
 * 1500 bytes *8 / 100Mbit = 0.12 ms
 * (100*10^6)*(1.95/10^3)/8 = 24375 bytes
 * (100*10^6)*(1.71/10^3)/8 = 21375 bytes
 * Added HoL: 3000 bytes
 * Still compared to TSO and GSO, the added HoL blocking is small.
