Hm. The case where you don't want parallel building of the hash table
might be substantially simpler. You could build a hash table and then
copy it into shared memory as single contiguous read-only data
structure optimized for lookups. I have an inkling that there are even
ways of marking the memory as being read-only and not needing cache
