>>> Why is clearing the count the right solution?  I understand that it makes the code work but it's clearing actual history too so that the call site doesn't reflect what was actually invoked.  A call site could suddenly look monomorphic when in fact it isn't.  I guess I would have expected that the count of the cleared row would be added to the count.  Also I think the logic that clears the slots should repack the entries so that none of the earlier slots are empty.
