Using glibc, we have the overhead of an additional library function call, which
we could eliminate by pulling in the code from glibc/nptl or a source of other
proven reference code.
The pgbench results I had posted before
http://archives.postgresql.org/pgsql-hackers/2012-07/msg00061.php could give an
indication on the higher base cost for the simple approach.
I have mentioned this before: While I agree that minimizing the base overhead is
good, IMHO, optimizing the worst case is the important part here.
