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.

Ingo
