Concurrent inserts should work with hash indexes in 7.4, though not 7.3.
The slowdown you report probably is due to the rewrite of hash indexing
to allow more concurrency --- the locking algorithm is more complex than
it used to be. I am surprised that the effect is so large though.
Could you make your test program available?

Are they? How many distinct values are there in those columns?
I suspect that your test may be stressing the case where only a few hash
buckets are used and each bucket chain gets to be very long.
