Ok here goes.
This is on 8way:

Average throughput = 11145 messages per second

Average throughput = 9860 messages per second

Average throughput = 9788 messages per second

So I grabbed test3-mm3 and started peeling back the patches
and found no change in throughput without _any_ of my Oxint patches applied,
and just Ingo's A3 patch:

Average throughput = 9889 messages per second

Then finally I removed that patch so there were no interactivity patches:
Average throughput = 11052 messages per second

I performed each run 3 times and have the results and profiles posted here:

wli suggested inlining sched_clock from A3 to see if that helped but at 3am I
think it can wait. At least I've been able to track down the drop. Thanks
zwane for the iron access.
