More data....

On a dual xeon with HTT enabled:

I tried increasing the NUM_SPINS to 1000 and it works better.

NUM_SPINLOCKS   CS      ID      pgbench

100             250K    59%     230 TPS
1000            125K    55%     228 TPS

This is certainly heading in the right direction ? Although it looks
like it is highly dependent on the system you are running on.
