My original patch implemented robust futexes using the existing futex
wait queue mechanisms, because the project I'm working on does not
need priority inheritance or other realtime features. David's changes
replaced the wait queue mechanisms with rt_mutexes. I'm working on
a patch to add my implementation back in, so the kernel will support
both robust wait-queue futexes and robust rt_mutex futexes. Does
anyone else see the need for this?

Also, my patch implemented only shared robust futexes. David's work
was based on mine, so the current code only supports shared robust
futexes that may or may not be priority inheritance. It doesn't support
priority inheritance mutexes that are not robust, or that are not shared.
