Flow Queue PIE packet scheduler

This patch series implements the Flow Queue Proportional
Integral controller Enhanced (FQ-PIE) active queue
Management algorithm. It is an enhancement over the PIE
algorithm. It integrates the PIE aqm with a deficit round robin

FQ-PIE is implemented over the latest version of PIE which
uses timestamps to calculate queue delay with an additional
option of using average dequeue rate to calculate the queue
delay. This patch also adds a memory limit of all the packets
across all queues to a default value of 32Mb.

For more information:

Changes from v4 to v5
 - This patch series breaks down patch 1 of v4 into
   separate logical commits as suggested by David Miller.
 - Patch #1
   - Creates pie.h and moves all small functions and structures
     common to PIE and FQ-PIE here. The functions are all made
 - Patch #2 - #8
   - Addresses code formatting, indentation and comment changes.
 - Patch #9
   - Refactors sch_pie.c by changing arguments to
     calculate_probability(), drop_early() and
     pie_process_dequeue() to make it generic enough to
     be used by sch_fq_pie.c. These functions are exported
     to be used by sch_fq_pie.c.
 - Patch #10
   - Adds the FQ-PIE Qdisc.

Changes from v3 to v4
 - Used non deprecated version of nla_parse_nested
 - Used SZ_32M macro
 - Removed an unused variable
 - Code cleanup
 All suggested by Jakub and Toke.

Changes from v2 to v3
 - Exported drop_early, pie_process_dequeue and
   calculate_probability functions from sch_pie as
   suggested by Stephen Hemminger.

Changes from v1 ( and RFC patch) to v2
 - Added timestamp to calculate queue delay as recommended
   by Dave Taht
 - Packet memory limit implemented as recommended by Toke.
 - Added external classifier as recommended by Toke.
 - Used NET_XMIT_CN instead of NET_XMIT_DROP as the return
   value in the fq_pie_qdisc_enqueue function.
