I've never seen it. Is this the test-starve fix I heard mentioned on lkml
once?

Ingo had me measure impact with lat_ctx, and it wasn't very encouraging
(and my box is UP). I'm not sure that I wasn't seeing some cache effects
though, because the numbers jumped around quite a bit. Per Ingo, the
sequence lock change will greatly improve scalability. Doing anything
extra in that path is going to cost some pain though, so I'm trying to
figure out a way to do something ~similar. (ala perfect is the enemy of
good mantra).

wrt pit, yeah, that diff won't work if you don't have a tsc. If something
like it were used, it'd have to have ifdefs to continue using
jiffies. (the other option being only presentable on April 1:)
