    In my experience we only care about cookies to be the same, and not
    monotinically grow up. So this may just jump up and down, and since
    events are potentially distributed in time (although follow one after
    another), wrapping should roughly cover number of processes running (and
    potentially renaming objects), so having 20 bits for the counter and 12
    for the CPU id should be enough for now.
