I'm using userspace RCU with success in financial software, so the LTTng project 
isn't the only user.  It works well, but it's not as fast as I'd like.  My 
profiling shows that the performance hit is coming from the memory barriers.  So 
I would very much like to see sys_membarrier go in.

Best wishes, Duncan.
