> {quote}...when a Memtable reaches its threshold, up to (all) N write threads will often
notice, and race to acquire the writeLock in order to freeze the memtable. This means that
we do way more writeLock acquisitions than we need to...{quote}
> See CASSANDRA-1930 for backstory, but adding double checking inside a read lock before
trying to re-entrantly acquire the writelock would eliminate most of these excess writelock
acquisitions.
> Alternatively, we should explore removing locking from these structures entirely, and
replacing the writeLock acquisition with a per-memtable counter of active threads.
