The locking in the clog area is pretty funky.  I bet we could craft
a special flavor of FlexLock to make that cleaner.  And I would be
surprised if some creative thinking didn't yield a far better FL
scheme for SSI than we can manage with existing LW locks.
Your description makes sense to me, and your numbers prove the value
of the concept.  Whether there's anything in the implementation I
would quibble about will take some review time.
