You are right that we only share iteration arrays. But only point is
that each entry of iteration array is just a pointer to hash entry.
So either we need to build hash in shared memory (my current approach)
or we need to copy each hash element at shared location (I think this
is going to be expensive).
Let me know if I am missing something..
