Package: systemd 
Version: 237-2 
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

by default Debian uses the pfifo_fast network queuing algorithm:

# tc -s qdisc show
qdisc pfifo_fast 0: dev eth0 root refcnt 2 bands 3 priomap  1 2 2 2 1 2 0 0 1 1 
1 1 1 1 1 1
 Sent 413728102 bytes 475015 pkt (dropped 0, overlimits 0 requeues 785)
 backlog 0b 0p requeues 785

The systemd source package contains this file:

  ./systemd-237/sysctl.d/50-default.conf:net.core.default_qdisc = fq_codel

whose purpose is to set the default queuing algorithm to fq_codel.  According 
to the NEWS file, this is a better alternative:

        * The default sysctl.d/ snippets will now set:

                net.core.default_qdisc = fq_codel

          This selects Fair Queuing Controlled Delay as the default
          queuing discipline for network interfaces. fq_codel helps
          fight the network bufferbloat problem. It is believed to be
          a good default with no tuning required for most workloads.
          Downstream distributions may override this choice. On 10Gbit
          servers that do not do forwarding, "fq" may perform better.
          Systems without a good clocksource should use "pfifo_fast".

However the 50-default.conf file is not in the Debian binary package.
Is this intentional or an omission?
Could it be possible to enable fq_codel by default?
