However I've been unable to demonstrate it yielding better performance than non-private futex, and since it adds (small, but nonzero) complexity and worse behavior on outdated (pre-2.6.22) kernels, I'm a bit hesitant to actually commit it. If anyone is interested in this feature, please see if you can find some examples that demonstrate that it measurably improves performance.
