Subject[PATCH 0/4][RT] futex: fix tasks blocking on two rt_mutex locks
Date
This patch-set address the following problem reported by Mike Galbraith:

> Stress testing, looking to trigger RCU stalls, I've managed to find a
> way to repeatably create fireworks. (got RCU stall, see attached)
>
> 1. download ltp-full-20100630. Needs to be this version because of
> testcase bustage in earlier versions, and must be built with gcc > 4.3,
> else testcases will segfault due to a gcc bug.
>
> 2. apply patchlet so you can run testcases/realtime/perf/latency/run.sh
> at all.

The LTP wreckage will be addressed separately <ugh>
