Don't we want to measure only downlink bandwidth/conditon separately
from uplink? What you suggest takes into account a lot of parameters
from both side. I still fail to see what exactly it represents. Imho,
it doesn't need TIOCOUTQ or latency. A top with N bytes sent "in
burst" is all it takes, no?
