True, if classic 2.6.32 actually meant non-pvops. In my memory that was the
version that first introduced them, so I assumed we talk about the same base.

The one I am looking at seems (as much info there is available right now, but I
try to get confirmation from reporters running a non-paravirt-spinlock kernel on
a production load) to be related directly to the paravirtualized spinlock
implementation for Xen.
