Only if there is contention. If there is no contention, then you pay the price
of some function call overhead. As demonstrated by my test results and explained in
my previous posted response, even under heavy abuse with a pathological config,
contention is low. 

If you can prove that the current locking is too heavy, there are solutions. Please
show me results that prove the patch causes you problems that can't be optimized.
