Putting that knob in there hurts. There's just no way in which we can
autodetect the right setting?

Ho hum. Well could someone please resend Ken's sysctl-knob patch, this

a) with a good changelog which is useful to people who write things to
/proc. ie: end users, not scheduler hackers and

b) with an update to Documentation/kernel-parameters.txt and

c) if poss, with a better name? Something which describes what its
effect is upon the overall system not its effect upon mysterious
scheduler internals.

If this thing is to be useful to administrators, they actually have to have
a chance of understanding what it does.
