_WHY_ do you start out with so much choice?

If your power policy is so abysmally poor on performance that you
already know you need a 3rd policy to keep people happy, maybe you're

I'd much prefer: sched_balance_policy. Scheduler policy is a concept
already well defined by posix and we don't need it to mean two
completely different things.
