Re: Context switching woes

I'm plan on having a thread management thread (which won't ever be locked)
to wake up threads...

Something like this... (pseudocode)

for each lockable resource
    if not locked
        if thread waiting
            wake up next queued thread
            remove thread from queue
        end if
    end if
end if
sleep for a short time

You could easily modify that to wait for a thread to be locked before waking
up another thread...
