Hm, it can't be made smaller because we're using UMA_ZONE_NOFREE... why 
are we using that?  Shouldn't locking handle that, rwatson? :)

In order to do that, it has to know if the tcptw entry is one that will 
be useful for the upcoming connection.  It might have to scan through many 
entries before it comes upon an entry, as your tests proved.  It's still 
going to perform poorly in certain circumstances.
