[Bug 1436945] Re: devel: consider fq_codel as the default qdisc for networking


Yes, lets fight #bufferbloat, especially for OS that goes into mobile
devices (phone, tablet, laptop, netbook, internet audio player, TV, etc.
which might connect to the network via WiFi and other wireless networks,
as their speed might be different from the surrounding (home / small
office) network. Because speed steps are the locations where bufferbloat
piles up.

And lets keep a keen eye on Dave Taht's work on Wifi core as this will
have another round of improvements to our mobile networked lives.

  I must confess I had hoped ubuntu would adopt fq_codel as the default                                      
  qdisc in this go-around. It is still not quite part of fedora´s                                            
  default either, but is now in arch, (and nearly everyone else                                              
  downstream from systemd), and has long been the default in openwrt,                                        
  and at this point, just requires a single sysctl to enable.                                                
  It certainly could use more widespread testing, perhaps in the next release?                               
  d@nuc-client:~$ cat /etc/sysctl.d/10-bufferbloat.conf
