Description Bill Gray 2013-08-14 09:42:56 EDT
numad always sets the value of THP scan_sleep_ms.  While the -H option can be used to specify changing the value to the existing value, it would be better for the user to be able to specify a simple invalid value (e.g. "-H 0") to signify that numad should leave the setting unchanged.  (See comments in BZ 987559).
