Revised version of "max delay" packet dropping in dummynet.


 * Delay specified in ticks.
 * Drop performed as packets were leaving the delay queue (i.e., leaving
   dummynet).  This is more accurate in terms of calculating time spent
   in dummynet, and can be used with all strategies of BW/delay shaping
   (constant values, distributions, table lookup), but required that
   ultimately-dropped packets get put on the BW queue, changing the timing
   of things.


 * Delay specified in milliseconds.
 * Drops perfromed as packets enter the bandwidth queue (i.e., arrive
   in dummynet).  Here drops are based on estimates of how long a packet
   would spend in dummynet and thus only works with constant delay/BW
   shaping characteristics, but does more accurately reflect queuing

The estimate is done by looking at the length in bytes of the bandwidth
queue (including the candidate packet) for the pipe, determining how long
it will take to transmit that many bytes, and then adding the delay value
for the pipe.
