I want to clean up things by removing the old burst scaling mode, but want/need confirmation that the new duration based method actually works as intended. (My next step then will be putting the axe on the quantum scaling, where I plan to use exactly the same size as for burst, on the theory that worst case we can only push bust bytes to the NIC and should try to service the other priority tiers at latest on the next HTB execution iteration).

I meant to get time to fiddle with it yesterday and I didn't. It's
sort of stacked in with the ecn-babel test

Would be interested to hear whether that does "the right thing" with your APU or on other's devices? The key variable is TARGET_BURST_DUR_MS in defaults.sh. Let me know how this performs for you (or whether there are bugs). As Toke proposed elsewhere I will try to streamline that branch to only configure burst size by duration so expect some changes in organization, but it should keep functional.
