I was hoping to get rid of DAX_EMPTY ... it's almost unused now. Once
we switch to having a single DAX_LOCK value instead of a single bit,
I think it can go away, freeing up two bits.

If you really want a special DAX_ENTRY_CONFLICT, I think we can make
one in the 2..4094 range.

That aside, this looks pretty similar to the previous patch I sent, so
if you're now happy with this, let's add

#define XA_DAX_CONFLICT_ENTRY xa_mk_internal(258)

to xarray.h and do it that way?
