> Currently we maintain a ConcurrentSkipLastMap of DecoratedKey -> Partition in our
memtables. Maintaining this is an O(lg(n)) operation; since the vast majority of users use
a hash partitioner, it occurs to me we could maintain a hybrid skip list / hash map. The skip
list would impose the order on the collection, but a hash index would live alongside as part
of the same data structure, simply mapping into the skip list and permitting O(1) lookups.
It should be possible to define the hash map to also permit O(1) inserts. Our decorated keys
are in fact perfectly designed for this scheme.
> At the same time, we can potentially improve the data locality in the skip list by baking
the initial 64 token bits directly into the structure, and storing multiple values per skip
list entry to improve cache performance, bringing down memory and constant factor cpu overheads.
