    qdisc: allow setting default queuing discipline · 6da7c8fc
    stephen hemminger authored
    By default, the pfifo_fast queue discipline has been used by default
    for all devices. But we have better choices now.
    This patch allow setting the default queueing discipline with sysctl.
    This allows easy use of better queueing disciplines on all devices
    without having to use tc qdisc scripts. It is intended to allow
    an easy path for distributions to make fq_codel or sfq the default
    This patch also makes pfifo_fast more of a first class qdisc, since
    it is now possible to manually override the default and explicitly
    use pfifo_fast. The behavior for systems who do not use the sysctl
    is unchanged, they still get pfifo_fast
    Also removes leftover random # in sysctl net core.
