Thank you very much for testing!

Results looks strange for me.  I wonder why there is difference between
lwlock-power-1.patch and lwlock-power-3.patch?  From my intuition, it
shouldn't be there because it's not much difference between them.  Thus, I
have following questions.

   1. Have you warm up database?  I.e. could you do "SELECT sum(x.x) FROM
   (SELECT pg_prewarm(oid) AS x FROM pg_class WHERE relkind IN ('i', 'r')
   ORDER BY oid) x;" before each run?
   2. Also could you run each test longer: 3-5 mins, and run them with
   variety of clients count?
