net: cbs: Fix software cbs to consider packet sending time

Currently the software CBS does not consider the packet sending time
when depleting the credits. It caused the throughput to be
Idleslope[kbps] * (Port transmit rate[kbps] / |Sendslope[kbps]|) where
Idleslope * (Port transmit rate / (Idleslope + |Sendslope|)) = Idleslope
is expected. In order to fix the issue above, this patch takes the time
when the packet sending completes into account by moving the anchor time
variable "last" ahead to the send completion time upon transmission and
adding wait when the next dequeue request comes before the send
completion time of the previous packet.

 - remove unnecessary whitespace cleanup
 - add the checks if port_rate is 0 before division

 - combine variable "send_completed" into "last"
 - add the comment for estimate of the packet sending
