Bug#645869: linux-2.6: keep kernel.sched_autogroup_enabled setting default (to 1)
since few versions, linux-2.6 uses an “autogroup" scheduling setting, which
is supposed to improve the responsiveness, especially for desktop session.
Upstream enables it by default, and there's a sysctl
(kernel.sched_autogroup_enabled) to disable it in case it causes issues.
Debian ships a patch (debian/patches/debian/sched-autogroup-disabled.patch)
which changes the default to disabled.
I'm not too sure what is the rationale for changing the default, but I think
it'd be nice to revert that and keep upstream default, unless there are good
reasons to divert from them.
