  *
  * Simple token based thrashing protection, using the algorithm
  * described in:  http://www.cs.wm.edu/~sjiang/token.pdf
+ *
+ * Sep 2006, Ashwin Chaugule <ashwin.chaugule@celunite.com>
+ * Improved algorithm to pass token:
+ * Each task has a priority which is incremented if it contended
+ * for the token in an interval less than its previous attempt.
+ * If the token is acquired, that task's priority is boosted to prevent
+ * the token from bouncing around too often and to let the task make
+ * some progress in its execution.
