This is most likely the round robinning of tasks every 25ms. The extra
overhead of nanosecond timing I doubt could make that size difference (but I
could be wrong). There is some tweaking of this round robinning in my code
which may help this, but it won't bring it back up to original performance I
believe. Two things to try are add my patches up to O12.3int first to see how
much (if at all!) it helps, and change TIMESLICE_GRANULARITY in sched.c to
(MAX_TIMESLICE) which basically disables it completely. If there is still a
drop in performance with this, the remainder is the extra locking/overhead in
nanosecond timing.
