[PATCH] pi-futex: robust-futex exit
Fix robust PI-futexes to be properly unlocked on unexpected exit. For this to work the kernel has to know whether a futex is a PI or a non-PI one, because the semantics are different. Since the space in relevant glibc data structures is extremely scarce, the best solution is to encode the 'PI' information in bit 0 of the robust list pointer. Existing (non-PI) glibc robust futexes have this bit always zero, so the ABI is kept. New glibc with PI-robust-futexes will set this bit.
