    This is available for a long time in the mutex implementation
    (PTHREAD_MUTEX_ADAPTIVE_NP mutex type). It hasn't show much
    improvement if any. There were some people demanding this support for
    as far as I know they are not using it now. This is adaptive
    spinning, learning from previous calls how long to wait. But it's
    still unguided. There is no way to get information like "the owner
    has been descheduled".
