I instrumented the lapic calibration on this box:

I1: 999 us total: 999 us
I2: 999 us total: 1998 us
...
I28: 999 us total: 27980 us
I29: 135097 us total: 163077 us <--------------------
I30: 881 us total: 163958 us
...
I98: 1000 us total: 231918 us
I99: 999 us total: 232917 us
So it vanishes away for 132 ms, which is exactly the error above. This
happens in random places and sometimes I'm lucky that it does not happen
at all.
