Hashed locking for the namecache


This patch uses a hash of locks to cover forward lookup in the namecache.
On an 8-core box it cuts the time for ' -j16 release' by about 5%.
We could probably do something a lot more efficient with garbage collection.
But, this patch is simple and I think it could be a stepping stone towards
a more better scheme.
