Is the below acceptible?

Subject: media/ivtv: Reduce default FIFO priority
From: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org>

The ivtv driver creates a FIFO-99 thread by default, reduce this to
FIFO-50.

FIFO-99 is the very highest priority available to SCHED_FIFO and
it not a suitable default; it would indicate the ivtv work is the
most important work on the machine.
