So, let's leave adding any additional column, but Alexander has brought up
a good point about storing the wait_type and actual wait_event
information into four bytes.  Currently I have stored wait_type (aka
in first byte and then two bytes for wait_event (eventId) and remaining
one-byte can be used in future if required, however Alexandar is proposing
combine both these (classId and eventId) into two-bytes which sounds
reasonable to me apart from the fact that it might add operation or two
in this path.  Do you or anyone else have any preference over this point?
