Subject: [PATCH iproute2-next v2 0/7] Move rate and size parsing and output to lib

The DCB tool will have commands that deal with buffer sizes and traffic
rates. TC is another tool that has a number of such commands, and functions
to support them: get_size(), get_rate/64(), s/print_size() and
s/print_rate(). In this patchset, these functions are moved from TC to lib/
for possible reuse and modernized.

s/print_rate() has a hidden parameter of a global variable use_iec, which
made the conversion non-trivial. The parameter was made explicit,
print_rate() converted to a mostly json_print-like function, and
sprint_rate() retired in favor of the new print_rate. Patches #1 and #2
deal with this.

The intention was to treat s/print_size() similarly, but unfortunately two
use cases of sprint_size() cannot be converted to a json_print-like
print_size(), and the function sprint_size() had to remain as a discouraged
backdoor to print_size(). This is done in patch #3.

Patch #4 then improves the code of sprint_size() a little bit.

Patch #5 fixes a buglet in formatting small rates in IEC mode.

Patches #6 and #7 handle a routine movement of, respectively,
get_rate/64() and get_size() from tc to lib.

This patchset does not actually add any new uses of these functions. A
follow-up patchset will add subtools for management of DCB buffer and DCB
maxrate objects that will make use of them.

v2:
- Patch #2:
    - Adapt q_mqprio.c patch, the file changed since v1.
- Patch #4:
    - This patch is new. It addresses a request from Stephen Hemminger to
      clean up the sprint_size() function.


Petr Machata (7):
  Move the use_iec declaration to the tools
  lib: Move print_rate() from tc here; modernize
  lib: Move sprint_size() from tc here, add print_size()
  lib: sprint_size(): Uncrustify the code a bit
  lib: print_color_rate(): Fix formatting small rates in IEC mode
  lib: Move get_rate(), get_rate64() from tc here
  lib: Move get_size() from tc here
