ok, to ease testing i've created a new (and not yet permanent) topic
tree for it to track this new perf feature: tip:perf/lock and pushed it
out.

Note: because it's not yet in a final form i have not merged it into
tip:master yet - when you are working on these bits you need to do this
manually via:

git merge tip/perf/lock

Also, we might need to rebase this branch as it's WIP, so the commit IDs
are not permanent yet. But i thought it would be easier to do deltas on
this basis.

Hitoshi-san, the patches did not have a Signed-off-by line from you, can
i add them for you?

Also, i agree that the performance aspect is probably the most pressing
issue. Note that 'perf bench sched messaging' is very locking intense so
a 10x slowdown is not entirely unexpected - we still ought to optimize
it all some more. 'perf lock' is an excellent testcase for this in any
case.

Thanks,

Ingo
