    [adding Andrew Morton to the cc: list as these issues are increasingly
    relevant to -mm and not VP specific]

    I am seeing the same prune_icache latency that Mark reported. I have
    never seen this one at all before T3. This one seem very frequent,
    enough so to overtake the netif_skb single-packet processing latency
    that seems to be our lower bound.

    Workload is just a kernel compile and an RT task (jackd).
    Interestingly, kswapd seems to have triggered the above, but I should
    not be hitting swap! I have swappiness set to 0, and here is what
    vmstat showed:
