      Description

      The experimental SyncKnobs flag can in theory be used to tune the behavior of the synchronization primitives. The flag was convenient when the various algorithms were compared a long time ago.

      In practice the only algorithm used and tested today are the default one. The SyncKnobs flag no longer serves the purpose it used to, and is "Unstable" (the documentation of the flag says so explicitly). It should be obsoleted and later removed.
