    Thinking about some abnormal situations, maybe 24 bit for `epoch` and 40 bit for `counter`
is more better choice: $Math.min(2^{24} / (24 * 365), 2^{40} / (86400 * 1000 * 365)) \approx
Math.min(1915.2, 34.9) = 34.9$

> If it is `1k/s` ops, then as long as $2^32 / (86400 * 1000) \approx 49.7$ days ZXID will
exhausted. But, if we reassign the `ZXID` into 16bit for `epoch` and 48bit for `counter`,
then the problem will not occur until after  $Math.min(2^16 / 365, 2^48 / (86400 * 1000 *
365)) \approx Math.min(179.6, 8925.5) = 179.6$ years.
> However, i thought the ZXID is `long` type, reading and writing the long type (and `double`
type the same) in JVM, is divided into high 32bit and low 32bit part of the operation, and
because the `ZXID` variable is not  modified with `volatile` and is not boxed for the corresponding
reference type (`Long` / `Double`), so it belongs to [non-atomic operation] (https://docs.oracle.com/javase/specs/jls/se8
/html/jls-17.html#jls-17.7). Thus, if the lower 32 bits of the upper 32 bits are divided into
the entire 32 bits of the `long`, there may be a concurrent problem.
