Kernel should do the right thing by default, I agree with Linus W.

Having reasonable defaults is useful; yes, my desktop has udev etc,
but I still want reasonable scheduler when doing fsck in
init=/bin/bash.

Plus, I update kernels more often than distros, and I run various
embedded stuff.

Kernel should just provide reasonable defaults.

And yes, we have "ionice" command and yes, it would be nice if it
worked by default...
