I was surprised when I measured the contention on the SIM lock. It was
much lower than I expected it to be. So this approach is looking to be
pretty good. It can be improved a little bit in CAM, but the focus will
now be on efficient locking strategies for the drivers. I have simple
locking implementations for MPT, AHC, and AHD right now, and I'll have
CISS and maybe SYM shortly. I suspect that the easiest approach to an
efficient strategy will be to make the driver ithreads be a lock-free as
I'm planning on writing a few pages of design docs on this in the next
few days to give people a guide for locking down their drivers.
