Well, the loop should be visible in the profile, since it's still active.

So doing something like

perf record -e cycles:pp -g -a sleep 60

to get a good profile for a minute, and then looking at the
instruction-level profiles in futex_requeue() should be possible.

Of course, inlining etc often makes those rather hard to see, and the
bulk of the profile is clearly all about the lock debugging overhead,
but if the loop is in futex_requeue() then that *should* be visible in
the profile, even if it may not be anywhere near the top..
