[BLOCK] elevator: allow default scheduler to potentially be modular
Jens has decided that allowing the default scheduler to be a module is a bug, and should not be allowed under kconfig. However, I find that scenario useful for debugging, and wish for the kernel to be able to handle this situation without OOPSing, if I enable such an option in the .config directly. This patch dynamically checks for the presence of the compiled-in default, and falls back to no-op, emitting a suitable error message, when the default is not available Tested for a range of boot options on 2.6.16-rc1-mm2.
