[Cake] total download rate with many flows

Indeed. Also interplanetary essentially omits cake_advance_shaper for 
dropped packets (since cobalt never drops that way), almost disabling 
ingress mode. Which leads to other hosts having pings to WAN > 500ms 
when one of them is using many flows.

What I think is happening in ingress mode is that codel starts dropping 
packets in many flows simultaneously. Each time this happens, 
q->time_next_packet is advanced, eventually dis-proportionally to the 
actual rate, and this leads to the actual download rate being lower than 

I am a big fan of ingress mode, just if we could correct this behaviour...
