Return non-zero tc_calc_xmittime() for rate tables

While looking at the problem of HTB accuracy for high speed (~500Mbit
rates) I've found that rate tables have cells filled with zeros for
the smallest sizes. It means such packets aren't accounted at all.
Apart from the correctness of such configs, let's make it safe with
rather overaccounting than leaving it unlimited.
