i haven't done any benchmarks concerning my fifo implementation ...
however it would probably make sense to write a blocking equivalent (the
two-lock concurrent queue described in the same paper of michael and
scott) with both spin locks and traditional mutexes ...
both average-case and worst-case execution times should be benchmarked,
though ...

cheers, tim

The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live,
mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time,
the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn,
burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across
the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and
everybody goes "Awww!
