FWIW, I find it incredibly concerning that we actually go through the
trouble of manually merging and evaluating the delta against Debian in
random packages while a substantial core delta such as a different IO
scheduler doesn't even have a well defined test case for why the delta
is there let alone gets re-evaluated ever so often.

Food for thought.
