Okay, the standards are a bit more stringent for hash functions. You
basically want the total number of collisions to be minimized.

That said, standard statistical things are useful for first-pass
discrimination.

This looks basically okay, but if it's really just even with respect
to cache pressure the need for a different data structure in the
eventual future is clear. I'd need a baseline (pre-hlist) dcache
snapshot to compare against to get a better idea.
