Indeed, the only way I've found to prevent the spinlock is to set the maximum connections (http) to something like 50k and then the spinlock never happens. On 4.0 you could set it to something conservative like 2k (the default) and you would be fine but if you upgrade to 4.1 and leave it at 2k you'll inevitably hit this spinlock eventually.
