dccp: Return-value convention of hc_tx_send_packet()

This patch reorganises the return value convention of the CCID TX sending
function, to permit more flexible schemes, as required by subsequent patches.

Currently the convention is
 * values < 0     mean error,
 * a value == 0   means "send now", and
 * a value x > 0  means "send in x milliseconds".

The patch provides symbolic constants and a function to interpret return values.

In addition, it caps the maximum positive return value to 0xFFFF milliseconds,
corresponding to 65.535 seconds.  This is possible since in CCID-3/4 the
maximum possible inter-packet gap is fixed at t_mbi = 64 sec.
