- This can be done without this script. What is the kernel config for?
- Inexperienced people get 'mysterious' xruns using jackd.
- Inexperienced people willing to 'read the [fine] manual' anyway don't
  know what they need to read, especially when thy think jackd is buggy.
- I run audio sessions by shell scripts, hence I can set the governor to
  performance, while it's ok when it's set to ondemand for non-audio
- Why not making a Debian that OOTB fit to most needs, even for people
  who don't wish to read [fine] manuals and to learn how to program.
- When I get a knife, I know how to use it, but I don't know how to make
  a knife and I don't want to learn how to make a knife, it should be
  already edged. I won't RTFM about knives.
