Using your, I see similar results on alpha, e.g. a factor of
22/18 for 3.0.1/3.1 in the empty call.

I don't understand how this author got the results he did.  It doesn't
look like he made his source available.

These locks have no contention though.  On a test program with high
contention I observed a 2-3x speedup with hash synchronization.
