Say I have:
If I want to use those counters from two threads I could pair each one
with a mutex. With some thought I might be able to do that with just
one bit per counter, but that's still 125 kbytes. Or, I could have 13
mutexes and hash from counter i to mutex i%13; even with a 24-byte
pthread_mutex that's only 312 bytes.
