I cannot believe you guys are still arguing about this and calling each
other stupid/incompetent/braindead and such (not this particular email
but all the stuff before) :)

Seems to me like leaving RT throttling disabled by default is a
reasonable compromise. Several people suggested that and the advantage
is that it does not change the definition of SCHED_FIFO/RR by default.

I personally do not care that much what the default is. If Fedora, for
example, starts enabling it by default I'll still have to change it. So
it's not much different from enabled by default in the kernel.
