:Forgive me if this has been beaten to death here or in other forums.  
:In apache 1.3 you can set SINGLE_LISTEN_UNSERIALIZED_ACCEPT to tell
:apache not to put some sort of mutex around the accept() call. This
:mutex was ostensibly required so that apache's multiple process
:children did not wake up on each request from the kernel.
:Is this kind of mutex still necessary in DFly? If not, why not? 
:Thanks in advance.

    Yes, the DFly select code still collides.
