This is a followup to the patches that James recently posted
which addressed some locking issues in lu_object.c.
I said at the time that I thought the locking could be
improved further.  Here is the result of that thought.

The lu_keys_guard lock is now gone, replaced by a spin lock, an rwsem,
and some lockless code.
The lu_context_exit() function, which appears to have been a
performance problem at one point, is now completely lockless.

This is an RFC at this stage: I haven't included Greg on the email and
don't expect this to go upstream without some review - and maybe even
some testing.

Thanks,
NeilBrown
