In order to more gracefully be able to fall back to lower rates without too
much throughput fluctuations, initialize all untested rates below tested ones
to the maximum probabilty of higher rates.
Usually this leads to untested lower rates getting initialized with a
probability value of 100%, making them better candidates for fallback without
having to rely on random probing
