100% agreed. Only 3 options are remotely acceptable to me (as I understand
it so far),
1. Change the default value (in fedora)
2. Change the value on a per-spin basis
3. allow installer/anaconda to set this (and other related items)
Seems 1 isn't going to happen, based on the feedback here so far. 3 seems
the best long-term solution, but likely not implementable for f14. Will
probably go with 2 in the short-term.

You might want to ask the upstream kernel
community what they think.
Good point, will do.
