Yes, no matter what SIS_PROP is set, the result of SIS_UTIL would be used to decide
the scan depth. We don't change the default value of SIS_PROP here, as this patch
tends to only touch one feature at one time. And the options could be tuned by user via
sysfs manually. Besides, the target is to replace SIS_PROP with another search policy,
Peter mentioned that "And ideally we're remove SIS_PROP after a few releases if this
works out", so I assume that changing the default value of SIS_PROP does not matter
in current patch.

thanks,
Chenyu
