Its a regression for those who do - and often have good reason to do.
This is of course why you don't put policy in the kernel and the original
patch was bogus anyway.

Which is the classic mentality that ruins the big bloated GNOME Linux
desktop "It works my way and every other way is wrong so go screw". Of
course the other half of the problem is exactly that - firefox was once a
small browser, its now a bloated monster too so the scheduler is quite
sensible to pick on it.
