Hi Andrew, This is a re-send of a series of patches concerning futexes (here after is a short description) Could you consider them for inclusion in -mm tree ? All of them have already been discussed in January and have already been included in -rt for a while. I think that we agreed to potentially include them in the -mm tree. Ulrich is specially interested by sys_futex64. There are: * futex uses prio list : allows RT-threads to be woken in priority order instead of FIFO order. * futex_wait uses hrtimer : allows the use of finer timer resolution. * futex_requeue_pi functionality : allows use of requeue optimization for PI-mutexes/PI-futexes. * futex64 syscall : allows use of 64-bit futexes instead of 32-bit. Note: it does not inlcude the fix "PI state locking fix" sent yesterday by Ingo. Thanks, -- Pierre
