    Subjectsched_yield() options
    I've seen a lot of discussion about how sched_yield is abused by 
    applications. I'm working with a developer on one application that looks
    like it's falling into this same trap (mutexes between threads and using
    sched_yield (or more precisely pthread_yield()) to let other threads get
    the lock)

    however I've been having a hard time tracking down the appropriate
    discussions to forward on to the developer (both for why what he's doing
    is bad, and for what he should be doing instead)

    could someone point out appropriate mailing list threads, or other
    documentation for this?
