Phoronix: Google Wants Fast Queue Spinlocks For The Linux Kernel
A Google engineer has proposed "Fast Queue Spinlocks" for the Linux kernel as an alternative in select cases to the default ticket spinlock...
I'd think this would have a good chance of being mainlined. Google knows a thing or two about scaling the linux kernel and handling massive loads. Would love to see the benchmarks posted here.
