ah, you got the latency tracer from Thomas, as part of the -hrt patchset
- that makes it quite a bit easier to debug. Could you run the attached
trace-it-10sec utility:

trace-it-10sec > trace-to-ingo.txt

and send me the (compressed) trace output (off-list, or post an URL to
the trace)? Try to reproduce the 'lag' event in the 10 seconds while the
tracer is running.
