I have fixed one or two more small issues:

1] the cpu cycles/s measurement was done while not yet running SCHED_FIFO.
changed it so the rt priv is aquired beforehand

2] when one or more irq's were missed, the cycle timestamps for the last wakeup
do not get used anymore for neither threshold nor max jitter reporting.
It's kind of pointless to calculate jitter for a period with the
fundamental requirement that no irq's be missed being violated.

3] the output file format (-o) is now

num_of_irqs_since_last_wakeup cycles_count

and basically looks like this:

1 116817809121123
1 116817810280681
1 116817811456573
1 116817812617197
1 116817813788473
1 116817814948983
1 116817816121533

i suppose this data might be easily fed into a histogram producing script or

btw: i see the same build failure as Rui with lock debugging disabled. Since
the lock debugging can screw timings, will this be fixed in [one of] the next
