Subject: net: allow configuring default qdisc
Since 3.12 it has been possible to configure the default queuing discipline via sysctl. This patch adds ability to configure the default queue discipline in kernel configuration. This is useful for environments where configuring the value from userspace is difficult to manage. The default is still the same as before (pfifo_fast) and it is possible to change after kernel init with sysctl. This is similar to how TCP congestion control works.
