Sorry, it wasn't directed personally at you, but to the entire MXS
community. The facts over this are:
1. This problem has been known about since October.
2. It's been discussed several times - every time along the same lines.
3. There is zero apparant progress on the issue.
Here's two of the discussions over it, where I've said exactly the same
So now, tell me - is this _finally_ going to get fixed in the MXS code,
or is the previous discussion about converting stuff to spinlocks etc
just going to be repeated yet again?
