Yes hash_32 seems reasonable for the uid hash.   With those long hash
chains I wouldn't like to be on a machine with 10,000 processes with
each with a different uid, and a processes calling setuid in the fast
path.

The uid hash that we are playing with is one that I sort of wish that
the hash table could grow in size, so that we could scale up better.

Aw well.  Most of the time we only have a very small number of uids
in play, so it doesn't matter at this point.
