Micro-Lock, MurmurHash 3, ...

A quick summary of work done on Rig in the past weeks since the release of 0.4.0:

  • added Micro-Lock, a Mutual Exclusion Lock, based on CAS like MRWLock, with support for ownership checking and recursive locking
  • added MurmurHash 3, the new version of this well known hash algorithm, even faster than its predecessor, especially on older systems
  • Atomic_Ops: added support for the SPARCv9 architecture, as well as support for GCC intrinsics (though the membar situation still needs some work there), and further support for emulating certain atomic primitives using others (there's a graph of how this works)
