[Cake] a little bit of cake testing

In summary, the new Codel behaviour works better on egress but worse on
ingress. That's reasonable - on ingress the queue always appears to build
slowly, so the new scheme always triggers late, and is more likely to
return aggressively to a lower signalling rate. I think we're going to need
a special mode for ingress.
However, I think a good deal of your poor results are due to not properly
matching the actual link bandwidth any more. I would suspect trouble in the
cable rather than the modem, given the symptoms.
