    OK, so start throwing stones at this. Once we have a memory model that
    works, I'll go through the process model.

    What is the difference between your messages and spin locks?
    Both seem to shuffle between cpus anytime anything interesting
    happens.

    In the spinlock case, I can thread out the locks in the page cache
    hash table so that the shuffling is reduced. In the message case, I
    always have to talk to someone.
