If it works correctly then the variability in lat_ctx should go away.
Try this

for p in 2 4 8 12 16 24 32 64
do for size in 0 2 4 8 16
do for i in 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0
do lat_ctx -s$size $p

on both the with and without kernel. The page coloring should make the
numbers rock steady, without it, they will bounce a lot.
