Thank you for bringing this in.  Do you or your collaborators also
plan to add the BFQ scheduler that was in the earlier separate
tarballs?  The numbers at

suggest that it worked well in a different context.

Also, there is a typographical error in the gsched(8) manpage: in the
EXAMPLES section, "-s" should be "-a" in:

           # Configure device ad0 to use scheduler 'rr':
           geom sched insert -s rr ad0
