Hi

migration expected_downtime calculation was removed on commit
e4ed1541ac9413eac494a03532e34beaf8a7d1c5.

We add the calculation back.  Before doing the calculation we do:

- expected_downtime intial value is max_downtime.  Much, much better
  intial value than 0.

- we move when we measure the time.  We used to measure how much it
  took "before" we really sent the data.

- we introduce sleep_time concept.  While we are sleeping because we
  have sent all the allowed data for this second we shouldn't be
  accounting that time as "sending".

- last patch just introduces the re-calculation of expected_downtime.

It just changes the stats value.  Well, patchs 2 & 3 change the
bandwidth calculation for migration, but I think that we were
undercalculating it enough than it was a bug.

Without the 2 & 3 patches, the "expected_downtime" for an idle gust
was calculated as 80ms (with 30 ms default target value), and we ended
having a downtime of around 15ms.

With this patches applied, we calculate an expected downtime of around
15ms or so, and then we spent aroqund 18ms on downtime.  Notice that
we only calculate how much it takes to sent the rest of the RAM, it
just happens that there is some more data to sent that what we are calculating.

Review, please.

Later, Juan.
