while the chosen elevator obviously is policy, the kernel really should
pick a sensible default based on what it knows.
Lets put it this way: if userland needs to do a tuning to the kernel
based on data only provided by the kernel, and will always do it the
same way, we should have made that choice the default policy in the
kernel in the first place.
