Subject changing prefork.c to use apr locks for the accept mutex
Date Wed, 01 Mar 2000 20:22:22 GMT
Any reason not to change prefork.c to use apr locks
instead of its own choice of locks for the accept mutex?

One issue is that prefork.c supports an additional mechanism --
Irix's usconfig() mutex -- which can only be used on Irix and should 
only be used on MP systems.  Supposedly the usconfig() mutexes
are an "order of magnitude faster than the SysV-semaphore code,"
so it seems worth trying to roll it into apr.  Unfortunately I
don't see an Irix system anywhere nearby :)
