I wouldn't normally respond to my own message, but I did finally find
what appears to be the authoritative text on how to use futex. Hopefully
other people will find this document useful as I did.


It's much more informative than the kernel code or the man page.

At this point, it's pretty clear that I don't really have much
worth contributing to the actual discussion, so I'll stay out
of it unless something more in line with my skill set comes up.
