#27363 new defect

Make the sbws node cap a proportion of the capped bandwidth

Here's a simple algorithm for capping relay bandwidths:

  1. Calculate the cap as X% of the total relay bandwidth before the cap
  2. If any relay is above the cap, set its bandwidth to the cap

But this algorithm calculates the cap as a proportion of the *uncapped* bandwidth, not the *capped* bandwidth. So the capped relays are actually slightly greater than X% of the capped bandwidth.

Maybe we will want to fix this issue eventually, but for the first release, the difference between X% and (X+1)% is not that important.

Remove parent #27336, since the parent is implemented for the MVP, and this does not need to be implemented for the MVP
