Spinlock contentions cause tps to go down. The fact that tps didn't
change much in this case suggests that either these workloads don't
generate enough spinlock contention to benefit from your patch, or
your patch doesn't meaningfully reduce it, or both. We might need a
test case that is more spinlock-bound to observe an effect.
