These new sync modes (RTS, HTS) are for MT.
For SP/SC - there is simply no point to use MT sync modes.
I suppose there are few choices:
1. Make F_SP_PUT/F_SC_GET flags silently override expected ops behaviour
   and create actual ring with ST sync mode for prod/cons. 
2. Report an error.
3. Silently ignore these flags.

As I can see for  "ring_mp_mc" ops, we doing #1, 
while for "stack" we are doing #3.
For RTS/HTS I chosoe #2, as it seems cleaner to me.
Any thoughts from your side what preferable behaviour should be?

Agree, it will be usefull.
Though it probably subject for a separate patch.
