    My original patch implemented robust futexes using the existing futex
    wait queue mechanisms, because the project I'm working on does not
    need priority inheritance or other realtime features. David's changes
    replaced the wait queue mechanisms with rt_mutexes. I'm working on
    a patch to add my implementation back in, so the kernel will support
    both robust wait-queue futexes and robust rt_mutex futexes. Does
    anyone else see the need for this?

    Also, my patch implemented only shared robust futexes. David's work
    was based on mine, so the current code only supports shared robust
    futexes that may or may not be priority inheritance. It doesn't support
    priority inheritance mutexes that are not robust, or that are not shared.
