    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW

Current WebKit uses a lot of spinlocks because they are cheap - they occupy little memory and they are inexpensive to acquire.  But they don't adapt to contention - instead they just spin.  We should make them adaptive.
