New Revision: 238685

  MFC r238063:
   - Make ipfw's sched rules case insensitive, for user-friendliness.
   - Add a note to the ipfw(8) man page about the rules no longer being
   case sensitive.
   - Fix some typos in the man page.

 is just a FIFO scheduler (which means that all packets
 are stored in the same queue as they arrive to the scheduler).
 FIFO has O(1) per-packet time complexity, with very low
 constants (estimate 60-80ns on a 2GHz desktop machine)
 but gives no service guarantees.

 implements the WF2Q+ algorithm, which is a Weighted Fair Queueing

 their weights. Note that weights are not priorities; even a flow
