Differences from tc for htb

For setting the quantum, tcng offers a better mechanism than tc: instead of using the slightly obscure r2q parameter, users can directly specify the quantum as the time during which the class can monopolize the link, which is then converted to the corresponding number of bytes. For compatibility, also r2q is supported.
