Cool. thanks!

I have noticed (without being quite sure what to do about it) that
my Centos 7 desktop (six core AMD Vishera) seems sluggish at times,
when there doesn't seem to be much running that should be a system
hog. I'll see if this change  helps resolve that.

Does running the command shown there make a permanent change, i.e.,
one that survives reboot?
