I suggest to have it_waiting defined always, the effect on memory usage is minuscule.

What is the locking protocol for it_waiting? Is it locked by it_thread thread lock?

Can you explain the desired semantic for intr waiting_5 soft event?

Good point about locking. I modified the code to use atomics instead.

Also, removed waiting_5 and let the user to choose the threshold when the PMC event is triggered (default = 1).

Any further comments?

New soft events should be documented in the pmc.soft(3) man page.
