Most multi-threaded software uses locking. Lock optimization traditionally has aimed to reduce lock contention, that is make the critical regions smaller. In optimized software, this often results in a lot of very small critical regions, protected by many locks. Each critical region does only a little work, before releasing the lock and potentially letting some other CPU access the same data.
