Subject Re: [performance] quick sort is 4x slower on Harmony

Hi, Egor, Pavel!

First, the impact of lock-less solution to other benchmarks. I had
measured two modes: (a) locks eliminated completely, (b) addNewValue
is locked only on insertion of new value into the table.

a. SPECjbb2005: no boost/degradation for overall score, (a) +10% score
improvement for 1st warehouse, (b) +9% score improvement for 1st

b. Dacapo: no boost/degradation for overall score on each of
subbenchmarks; (a) +9% improvement on first iteration, (b) + 5%
improvement on first iteration.

c. SciMark: no boost/degradation.

So I propose to apply patch for (b) and introduce two options:
 a. VP locking enable/disable
 b. VP flagged locking (to check Egor's suggestion).

Ah, I should see that comes :D

Sorry, I was overloaded with my university exams :) I filed the JIRA
[1] with (b) patch attached, but I can't imagine when I could get to
implementation of flagged collision check and externalization of the
options. Egor, can you elaborate with them?
