futex_requeue_pi optimization
This patch provides the futex_requeue_pi functionality, which allows some threads waiting on a normal futex to be requeued on the wait-queue of a PI-futex. This provides an optimization, already used for (normal) futexes, to be used with the PI-futexes. This optimization is currently used by the glibc in pthread_broadcast, when using "normal" mutexes. With futex_requeue_pi, it can be used with PRIO_INHERIT mutexes too.
