Finally replying to this now, because somebody just referenced it and I see
nobody else has replied.
* include your patch inline or post a link to it that's easy to see in a
browser. you'll get more feedback.
* a tarball's the wrong format. just post a unified diff (diff -u)
* we don't about diffs to auto-generated files like configure scripts. just
* #ifdefs all over source code are ugly
* please follow local style. that is, look at code around you and make your
new code look like existing code.
* magic exptime value? magic values are gross. don't we have flag bits
* what happens when one LRU-locked amidst thousands of non-LRU-locked items
gets to the tail of the queue? are we locked forever. do you promote the
LRU-locked one to the head?
