Attached are call graphs for 8 and 32 clients, with your latest patch
applied. At 8 clients, we're already at 80% spinlock time. While running
the 32 client record, I wanted to open a file in the tmpfs mount where
dbench was running. bash was spinning until dbench completed.

At 32 clients, throughput is 75% of the 8 client case. And spinlock time
there is at 90%.

I have attached both outputs.
