Hi,

High client count right?

I reproduced this on my Q6600 box. However, I also reproduced it with
2.6.22.19. What I think you're seeing is just dbench creating a massive
train wreck. With CFS, it appears to be more likely to start->end
_sustain_, but the wreckage is present in O(1) scheduler runs as well,
and will start->end sustain there as well.
