CONFIG_WAITQ_SCALABLE

Use scalable wait_q implementation

Type: bool

Help

When selected, the wait_q will be implemented with a balanced tree. Choose this if you expect to have many threads waiting on individual primitives. There is a ~2kb code size increase over WAITQ_DUMB (which may be shared with SCHED_SCALABLE) if the rbtree is not used elsewhere in the application, and pend/unpend operations on “small” queues will be somewhat slower (though this is not generally a performance path).
