With 7000 users, there will be extreme contention on the rwsems. The
lock handoff patch is known to reduce throughput with such level of lock
contention. This is a tradeoff between throughput and fairness. I don't
think this is a problem unless some real world workloads also have
significant regression in performance. I will try to reproduce the
regression and see if we can do something to reduce the performance
