    Subjectfurwocks: Fast Userspace Read/Write Locks
    Date
    This is a userspace implementation of rwlocks on top of futexes.

    Release was delayed because tdbtorture started crashing... turns out
    it's unrelated 2.5.6-pre2 wierdness (after a good 6 hours debugging
    <SIGH>).

    So I don't have numbers, but I'm pretty sure this is as good as it
    gets without explicit kernel support for rwlocks. Kudos to Paul
    Mackerras for the brainwork on this one. Blame me for the name.

    Cheers!
    Rusty.
