All the locks in j.u.concurrent plan well with virtual threads, meaning 
the underlying carrier thread is released to do other work when a 
virtual thread parks. So no need to compensate in these cases.  The 
limitation is with Java monitors, the built-in locks that are the 
"synchronized" keyword.
