All the big features come from other upstreams. For example, BFQ is
not merged because the kernel maintainers want it as a patch to CFQ,
not a separate scheduler. AUFS is not merged because it's a huge
spaghetti mess (and we now have overlayfs). What remains are tweaks
for PC usage that conflict with Linux' generalism. Gotta run good on
that big iron.
