When we introduced the saturated workload detection to tell us to back
off from semaphore usage [semaphores have a noticeable impact on
contended bus cycles with the CPU for some heavy workloads], we first
introduced it as a per-context tracker. This allows individual contexts
to try and optimise their own usage, but we found that with the local
tracking and the no-semaphore boosting, the first context to disable
semaphores got a massive priority boost and so would starve the rest and
all new contexts (as they started with semaphores enabled and lower
priority). Hence we moved the saturated workload detection to the
engine, and a consequence had to disable semaphores on virtual engines.

Now that we do not have semaphore priority boosting, and try to fairly
schedule irrespective of semaphore usage, we can move the tracking back
to the context and virtual engines can now utilise the faster inter-engine
synchronisation. If we see that any context fairs to use the semaphore,
because the system is oversubscribed and was busy doing something else
instead of spinning on the semaphore, we disable further usage of
semaphores with that context until it idles again. This should restrict
the semaphores to lightly utilised system where the latency between
requests is more noticeable, and curtail the bus-contention from checking
for signaled semaphores.
