"The Linux locking primitives (spinlocks, rwlocks, mutex, rw semaphores
and futexes) have undergone substantial changes in recent years to
improve their performance and scalability. This talk will present
the new locking implementations like qspinlock, qrwlock as well as
improvements to existing mutex, rw semaphore and futex code bases. It
will also discuss new locking patches that are being proposed to be
merged in future kernel releases. After the session, the audience will
have a better understanding of the locking improvements and what to
expect in the near future."
