+ESI and Backend Request Coalescing ("waitinglist") Improvement
+Previously, ESI subrequests depending on objects being fetched from
+the backed used polling, which typically added some ~5ms of processing
+time to such subrequests and could lead to starvation effects in
+extreme corner cases.
+The waitinglist logic for ESI subrequests now uses condition variables
+to trigger immediate continuation of ESI processing when an object
+being waited for becomes available.
