[Cake] perhaps a performance optimization

thought: since it takes two data packets for tcp to release an ack,
perhaps it is better in some circumstances (notably with offloads
enabled) to peel at quantum * 2,
still delivering packets with a quantum (with a max of a mtu), so that
delivering two unpeeled packets would cost that flow a DRR round, but
save a lot on peeling overhead.

sch_fq has a quantum of 3028.
