Next point of discussion must be PI . Considering that this
implementation is lacking it. Maybe it wouldn't be "lightweight" if it was
included.

If PI is to be added to Linux it will need to encompass both
mutex implementations . Was this a consideration in the design of these
lightweight futexes?
