I have a couple of questions then. The code relies heavily on the
use of __spin_lock operations, however they are mach specific.
Is there a standard internal  iterface to locks in glibc?
Otherwise most of the code already has to be moved into under sysdeps/mach.

Also what is the difference between sysdeps/generic/ and pthread/
subdirs. They both contain system independent code.
