Back when we did this:

http://lkml.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/1109.1/01941.html
http://lkml.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/1109.1/01943.html

Things came apart -- notably sysvsems.

And yes its true that anything not dealing with spuriuos wakups is
borken, but there's still quite a lot of borken out there, although I
think we fixed all the really common ones.

But if we decide we want to go do this, I'd propose we reintroduce this
delayed wake list thing again.
