SubjectRe: [profile] amortize atomic hit count increments

William, any reason not to fully per-cpu the profile buffer
and then only traverse the array when the user attempts to
capture the counters?

Then we can undo the atomics altogether, as well as the cacheline
traffic, for the extremely common case.

Are there space concerns?
