Just to make it easier for others to see the rationale behind this series, see the
numbers and limitations listed below.


As measured using:

$ echo 4096 32000 64 128 > /proc/sys/kernel/sem
$ ./sembench -t 2048 -w 1900 -o 0

unpatched: run time 30 seconds 639476 worker burns per second
patched: run time 30 seconds 847526 worker burns per second

Still need to sort out all the races marked XXX (non-trivial), and its
x86 only for the moment.
