guess the only sane answer to that is "don't configure cake for 100Mbit
and 1s+ of latency if you don't have the memory to spare".
Having the (now lower) bound be a bit lower than it is currently may be
a good idea, but not sure what it should be... The current 10240 matches

Yup. 1/16th has the benefit of being implementable as a 4bit shift :)
Before, the target was hard-coded as 5 ms; so this was definitely an
