[Flent-users] [tohojo/flent] Using irtt for VoIP tests (#119)

Since we now have support for a nice UDP measurement tool in irtt, and also the ability to do fallback runner selection, we finally have an opportunity to retire D-ITG for VoIP measurements.

This issue is a fork of the discussion from the old monster thread in #106 to deal specifically with the VoIP emulation parts. Some comments from that thread:

and

> G.711 can be simulated today with `-i 20ms -l 172 -fill rand -fillall`. I do this test pretty often, and I think it would be a good default voip test. The reason for the 172 vs 160 is the addition of a 12 byte RTP header, which is present in the wireshark trace of a SIP G.711 call:

I'd give up server received stats and dual timestamps, so `-i 20ms -l 33 -rs none -ts midpoint` is a start. Not sure about additional headers.
