Fair enough.

Ha ha - as good a reason as any :-)

Ok, so I've pushed the 'split u32 last_len into 2 u16' tweaks to tc-adv 
& sch_cake.

I will push a corresponding change into LEDE for the iproute2 (tc) 
package.   The push of sch_cake itself will happen after I've merged 
cobalt into master - that will happen shortly unless someone screams.

My plan on that is to merge cobalt into master, and then rebase cobalt 
to that merge..effectively a fast-forward to the new master...cobalt can 
then continue with development from that new starting point.
