I'd like to move the work done on the gobject-performance branch to
master now that 2.22.0 is out. It contains tremendous improvements for
threaded applications and even noticably speeds up non-threaded
performance. The patches on the branch have been developed, reviewed
and tested by at least Alex Larsson, Edward Hevery and me, so it
should be sufficiently reviewed.
I'd have liked to get Tim to review it, but he seems to be quite busy
now and IMO we threw enough eyes and CPU time at the issue to be sure
there is no regressions. (From the tests we added, I'd even say it's
more stable than master).

I'd also like to get it merged while we're far away from the next
release, so it gets enough testing, as these changes are quite deep
down the stack and we want to find remaining issues with them before
we release the next stable.

So can we merge the branch or is there anything that we should take
care of before?
