    Well, this should be discussed much more before doing anything.

    IMO, for 2.6 FUTEX_FD should be removed or disabled. It doesn't work

    As for later, and which extensions to add, Ingo and I discussed this
    quite a bit already. One of the problems is that once you extend the
    basic set of operations the possible way are very numerous and the
    interfaces can explode in number.

    My hopes are that we can come up with some nice and generally useful
    additions in the not too distant future and that they can be added to
    the 2.6 kernel. IMO we cannot wait for the next stable release.

    I am not sure that this list is the adequate forum for discussing the
    futex extensions. If somebody says where it should take place and
    somebody actually declares willingness to work on the implementation
    side, I can write down my thoughts and post it.
