Indeed. So, as far as this series is concerned, it looks like either the
following solutions:
 - introduce a new scheduler, with a new name, and deprecate SEDF all 
 - keep the name and the full existing interface, but warn the user when
   she touches one of the params that are no longer in use in the 
would be ok.
