Subject Thoughts on locks
Date Tue, 26 Jun 2001 17:49:42 GMT
Please forgive me if this issue has been covered previously, but
I've been wondering lately about whether it would be useful to
add support for lightweight spin-locks as  a complement to the
current intraprocess locks in APR.  There are some places, like
the pool memory allocator, where a spinlock might perform better
than a pthread mutex.  Thoughts?
