== BFQ Scheduler ==
BFQ is a proportional-share storage-I/O scheduler that also supports hierarchical scheduling with a cgroups interface.
Upstream URL: http://algo.ing.unimo.it/people/paolo/disk_sched/
Integration to 4.12 Linux Kernel: https://lwn.net/Articles/720675/

== Set the BFQ scheduler as default ===

== Ubuntu patches have NOT been applied ==
The Ubuntu patches have not been applied. The linux-image-extra does not exist here.

== Single Flavor ==
I have created a new flavor named 'lz4'. This is the only flavor that exists here. Neither 'generic' nor 'lowlatency'.

== Installation ==
Add the Repo and Install the meta-package

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nick-athens30/xenial
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install linux-lz4

If you have another version of Ubuntu than Xenial and you want to install this kernel, you can try to add the PPA manually and Install:

$ echo "deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/nick-athens30/xenial/ubuntu xenial main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/nick-athens30-xenial.list
$ sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys F56AC5FABE7E0CA1
