Sigh.

1ms of traffic at 40Gbit is 5 MBytes

The reason for the cap to /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_limit_output_bytes is
to provide the limitation of ~2 TSO packets, which _also_ is documented.

Without this limitation, 5 MBytes could translate to : Fill the queue,
do not limit.

If a particular driver needs to extend the limit, fine, document it and
take actions.
