273     assert(_coarse_map.at(max_hrm_index) == false, "No coarse entries");

Never compare to false/true directly but use ! here.

276     // concurrent reader will ever see _has_coarse_entries == true

s/==/is  (or "is set" or some similar text)

Looks good otherwise. I do not need to see a re-review for these changes.
