[c-nsp] CSR1000V and CPU usage

The bandwidth is assessed as a sum on ingress:

My unscientific experiments seem to indicate that the control plane traffic
is probably not counted towards the licensed bandwidth. For example - if we
drop all licences (default is then 100kb/s max) then router keeps all
adjacencies (BGP, OSPF, LDP even BFD) but forwarded traffic gets  dropped.
I haven't investigated this further, so it's also possible that QoS is
helping the adjacencies to stay up.

kind regards
