SubjectRe: [PATCH] O17int
Date
Unhappy with this latest O16.3-O17int patch I'm withdrawing it, and 
recommending nothing on top of O16.3 yet.

More and more it just seems to be a bandaid to the priority inverting spin on
waiters, and it does seem to be of detriment to general interacivity. I can
now reproduce some loss of interactive feel with O17.

Something specific for the spin on waiters is required that doesn't affect
general performance. The fact that I can reproduce the same starvation in
vanilla 2.6.0-test3 but to a lesser extent means this is an intrinsic problem
that needs a specific solution.
