Write a library of routines that estimate the expected transmission duration of a queue of 802.3 or 802.11 frames based on the current bit rate, applicable overhead, and the backoff level. The kernel will use this library to help it decide when packet queues have grown too long in order to mitigate "buffer bloat."
