Use citeseerx to find papers on "thin locks", "meta locks" etc eg:

  Subject: [concurrency-interest] Lock type question


  Hi,
           Does lock striping have any advantages in a multi-core
environment. Is there any material to read to understand this ?


           What papers describe types of locks ( thin locks vs fat locks
etc. ) ? I have seen brief blog entries about these and I am aware of biased
locks.


  Thanks,
  Mohan
