A while ago I presented some benchmarks comparing different types of
mutex including a spinlock. See e.g. http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lib.boost.devel/166875.
My implementations at that time were just ad-hoc code for
benchmarking. I've recently been turning it into something more useful
and will post a message here about it soon.
To make this cross-platform, we really need an implementation of
atomics like e.g. N2427.
