So what you are suggesting is that have an additional information
like sub_wait_event and it will display lock number for the LWLocks
which belong to tranche and otherwise it will be NULL for HWLocks
or Individual LWLocks. I see the value in have one more field, but
just displaying some number and that too is not exact in some cases
like where LWLocks are more doesn't sound to be very informative.
Any body else have an opinion on this matter?

I also think those are fair limits, let me try to shrink those into
number of bits suggested by you.
