    the overhead is always relative to the previous entry - so the overhead
    was in n_tty_receive_buf() [that is the function that was interrupted by
    do_IRQ()]. But it's a bit weird - you should have gotten timer IRQs
    every 1 msec. Does n_tty_receive_buf() run with irqs disabled perhaps?
