No, it doesn't. You can monitor the latency using realfeel or realfeel2
from http://www.zip.com.au/~akpm/linux/amlat.tar.gz

But that won't tell you _why_ large latencies are occurring. For that,
you'll need to apply
http://www.zip.com.au/~akpm/linux/patches/2.5/2.5.54/2.5.54-mm3/experimental/rtc-debug.patch
and run `amlat'. This combination will spit out stack backtraces whenever
there is a 2 millisecond scheduling overrun.

That's not suitable for this work. intlat is OK for locating and
measuring interrupts-off code paths. But it's a bit hard to drive.
