The RT thing isn't particularly about scaling per-se, its mostly about
working at all.

This thing still relies on disabling IRQs in the slow path, which means
its still going to be a lot of work to make it work on -rt.

It also heavily relies on bit-spinlocks, which again is going to need
changes for -rt.

But yes, the lockless fast path is nice, I'll try and get around to
reading it.
