I'm an old man. I can't deal with your hours. :-)

I found it simpler to include the upgradable in the reader count. It
has been a year or two since I made that decision so, you know, times
change, sometimes we get smarter (sometimes not). At the time: an
upgradable lock is a reader. It doesn't become a writer until
someone asks it to, at which time it decrements the reader count and
waits at gate 2. YMMV.
