A handy way to figure this kind of thing out is to run a query like
this repeatedly during the benchmark:

SELECT wait_event_type, wait_event FROM pg_stat_activity;

I often do this by using psql's \watch command, often \watch 0.5 to
run it every half-second.  I save all the results collected during the
benchmark using 'script' and then analyze them to see which wait
events are most frequent.  If your theory is right, you ought to see
that SerializableXactHashLock occurs as a wait event very frequently.
