Fast open addressing hash table in C++.
This hashmap is an open-addressing hashtable similar to
google/dense_hash_map, however, it uses tombstone bitmaps to eliminate necessity for empty or deleted key sentinels. This means the hash map could potentially be made into a drop-in replacement for
std::unordered_map. The code supports enough of the C++ unordered associative container requirements such that it can be substituted for many typical use-cases.
These small maps are useful for histograms and other frequently accessed data structures where performance is critical.
The following benchmarks were performed on an Intel Core i9-7980XE using GCC 9.2. Note this benchmark is somewhat contrived, but is intended to measure minimum latency for small histogram hashtables.
