It looks great to me, thanks for working on this.  One change I'll
probably make here is to do something like this:

if (trans->transaction->num_writers > 1)
    timeout = 1
drop locks

This way we don't loop in schedule when there are writers around who
will wake us.  I'll give it a try this afternoon.
