Extended Events wait_type value:
Maps to the PREEMPTIVE_FSRECOVER_CONDITIONALUNDO map_value in sys.dm_xe_map_values (thanks to Jonathan’s post here).
The map_key value in sys.dm_xe_map_values is 516 in 2008 and 2008 R2, 564 in 2012, and 580 in 2014 RTM. After 2014 RTM, you must check the DMV to get the latest value as some map_key values have changed in later builds.
I have not seen this wait type to be a noticeable contention point.
