    I am tracking Peter's code in tip/core/locking:

    c10b491: mutex: implement adaptive spinning, v8
    c356a7c: mutex: implement adaptive spinning, v7
    b89e5d8: mutex: implement adaptive spinning, v6
    237ac94: mutex: implement adaptive spinning

    And v8 is rock solid in all my testing - and i'll give v10 a similar
    workout as well.

    Would you prefer a single commit or is this kind of delta development
    history useful, with all the variants (at least the later, more promising
    ones) included?

    The commits are in a tight group with no merges inbetween.
