The state of the art of sysv/posix ipc benchmarking is a combination of ad-hoc programs scattered over the internet. While some mechanisms, such as sysv semaphores, have a lot of coverage, others really lack (message queues), and some are simply non-existent; albeit some of the legacy flavors we aren't too concerned with, other than them being functionally correct.

Consolidate all this by taking the good benchmarks and implement new ones where needed, such as message queues, everything around the 'perf bench' framework. This will both improve the lives of us who hack on kenrel ipc as well as improve coverage overall. Eventually mmtests should be updated as well.
