If you care about speed, you can implement your own library, which uses
virtual memory to communicate among threads. Any other alternative
involving an OS supported IPC mechanism will pay a syscall overhead.

Basically you implement your own message queue at a fixed address
in the address space shared by all threads.

There may be such libraries already available (mm, shm ?)
