:	Just for twinkles, I got half of the futex kernel part done
:	today in the afternoon when I was bored out of my skull.  I am
:	finding the kernel part much more simpler to do, and have put
:	it into something called libfutex.  I shall work on this more,
:	later on in the week.
:	Btw, what did you think about adding a lib/ under sys/ ?

    I think we can add lib under sys but it will take a bit of cvs
    surgery to move the ,v files, and because pieces of libkern are used
    by the boot code, I think.
