If you just probe the hash table to get the pv, sometimes entries will have been
overwritten, and you can't retrieve the full pv. But if you keep track of the pv
by other means (a classic pv array), you can store that in the hashtable at the
end of an iteration. You can still experience a hash hit when searching the pv.
If this happens, you wont have the full pv, you will miss the part after the
hash hit.
