/** @file
 * This file provides a "hotel" class:
 * - A hotel has a fixed number of rooms (i.e., storage slots)
 * - An arbitrary data pointer can check into an empty room at any time
 * - The occupant of a room can check out at any time
 * - Optionally, the occupant of a room can be forcibly evicted at a
 *   given time (i.e., when an opal timer event expires).
 * - The hotel has finite occupancy; if you try to checkin a new
 *   occupant and the hotel is already full, it will gracefully fail
 *   to checkin.
 * One use case for this class is for ACK-based network retransmission
 * schemes (NACK-based retransmission schemes probably can use
 * opal_ring_buffer).  
 * For ACK-based retransmission schemes, a hotel might be used
 * something like this:
 * - when a message is sent, check it in to a hotel with a timer
 * - if an ACK is received, check it out of the hotel (which also cancels
 *   the timer)
 * - if an ACK isn't received in time, the timer will expire and the
 *   upper layer will get a callback with the message
 * - if an ACK is received late (i.e., after its timer has expired),
 *   then checkout will gracefully fail
 * Note that this class intentionally provides pretty minimal
 * functionality.  It is intended to be used in performance-critical
 * code paths -- extra functionality would simply add latency.
 * There is an opal_hotel_init() function to create a hotel, and a
 * corresponding opal_hotel_finalize() function to destroy a hotel.

   Use a unique struct for holding the arguments for eviction
   callbacks.  We *could* make the to-be-evicted opal_hotel_room_t
   instance as the argument, but we don't, for 2 reasons:

   1. We want as many opal_hotel_room_t's to fit in a cache line as
      possible (i.e., to be as cache-friendly as possible).  The
      common/fast code path only needs to access the data in the
      opal_hotel_room_t (and not the callback argument data).

   2. Evictions will be uncommon, so we don't mind penalizing them a
      bit by making the data be in a separate cache line.
