Okay, but IIUC, the PrefetchBuffer is an async call to load the buffer
if it's not already in shared buffer? so If instead of one process is
making multiple async calls to PrefetchBuffer, if we make it by
multiple processes will it be any faster?  Or you are thinking that at
least we can make BufTableLookup call parallel because that is not an
async call.
