    Gone:

    Replaced with a set of smaller locks, which scales better.

    The same thing was done with the big kernel lock.
    Thanks for the clarification....BTW, in what Kernel version was that also solved ?

    I'm curious about that...

    For now, I don't see any updates in Maarten Lankhorst Wine/Multimedia git tree, so I can assume that this patch-set is incompatible w/ 1.5.11.
    Hopefully Maarten will re-base his PA patch-set on 1.5.11 soon.
