- How this would deal with ps(1) and top(1)? There are still dependencies to
the estcpu, and SCHED_M2 does not calculate it. I do not know what would be
appropriate to do here.
- If l_estcpu is only for SCHED_4BSD, it would be good to keep the
abstraction, and move it into the l_sched_info.

Why l_policy was not used/renamed/removed?
