Accessing 4 entries per probe is a tempting line of development, but will be subject to diminishing returns (second and third collisions aren't frequent).

I like the idea of aligning j to fit in a cache line, but the computation would need to be cheap and portable (standard C with no pointer tricks that rely on non-guaranteed behavior).

Have you had a chance to run the benchmarks on your machine?  I'm curious how this works out on other processors and with other compilers.
