btw., you have this enabled in your config:


this causes old-style spinlocking to be activated by default. I.e. you
dont get most of the benefits of PREEMPT_RT. You can reactivate it via:

echo 1 > /proc/sys/kernel/preempt_locks

but obviously this runtime flag involves some runtime overhead in the
locking code. This .config option is mainly meant to enable the
measurement of the locking overhead of PREEMPT_RT, and to debug boot
problems that might be related to PREEMPT_RT locking. So you'd almost
always want to run with DEBUG_RT_LOCKING_MODE turned off.
