[Make-wifi-fast] free.fr and fq_codel

My understanding was that it was in use within their v6 freebox server:

Which is the DSL Modem/Router for the residence.  When I lived in Paris
(4-5 years ago), free.fr was my ISP.  I don't have details of the
deployment, except that it was very well done.  Using CeroWRT and the
qos_scripts I made only marginal improvements over their own configuration
(not enough to be worthwhile, honestly).  ~70ms ping times, regardless of
the load.  Virtually no bufferbloat.

My write-up (which is terrible, and naive, but I was still learning about
bufferbloat at the time), is here:

My current view is that all of the fiddling I did then was for naught.  No
real improvement over what they had on the wire.  And vastly better than
any other ISP I've seen (as you can see from the rest of the posts there).
