Add documentation for the latest options, flags and txtime-delay, to the
taprio manpage.

This also adds an example to run tc in txtime offload mode.

+Specifies different modes for taprio. Currently, only txtime-assist is
+supported which can be enabled by setting it to 0x1. In this mode, taprio will
+set the transmit timestamp depending on the interval in which the packet needs
+to be transmitted. It will then utililize the

+txtime-delay

+This parameter is specific to the txtime offload mode. It specifies the maximum
+time a packet might take to reach the network card from the taprio qdisc. The
+value should always be greater than the delta specified in the
