That's good. I remembered that the earlier version of the patch not
only recovered the performance drop, but also provide some boost when
you switch from i_mmap_mutex to rwsem for aim7. Do you see similar
boost with this version?

I think that MCS locking is worth breaking out as its
own library. After we've done that, the rest of
the duplication are minimal. It is easier
to keep them separate as there are some rwsem
specific logic that may require tweaking
to can_spin_on_owner and owner_running.

Thanks.
