Indeed, I haven't thought about that, and that's a no-brainer. That
would remove the need to allocate and sort each array, what is simply
needed is to track the number of times a newest value has been found.
So what this processing would do is updating the write/flush/apply
values for the first k loops if the new value is *older* than the
current one, where k is the quorum number, and between k+1 and N the
value gets updated only if the value compared is newer. No need to
take the mutex lock for a long time as well. By the way, the patch now
conflicts on HEAD, it needs a refresh.
