Thanks for reviewing and testing.

Yes, powerpc could certainly get more performance out of the slow
paths, and then there are a few parameters to tune.

We don't have a good alternate patching for function calls yet, but
that would be something to do for native vs pv.

And then there seem to be one or two tunable parameters we could
experiment with.

The paravirt locks may need a bit more tuning. Some simple testing
under KVM shows we might be a bit slower in some cases. Whether this
is fairness or something else I'm not sure. The current simple pv
spinlock code can do a directed yield to the lock holder CPU, whereas
the pv qspl here just does a general yield. I think we might actually
be able to change that to also support directed yield. Though I'm
not sure if this is actually the cause of the slowdown yet.

Thanks,
Nick
