I just built this to see how much blood it would draw, which isn't
much. I don't have jack here, so I don't have your standard torture
test. Instead, I run tvtime, which runs at a -19 priority.

I let it run about 30 seconds (untimed), noted that the frame error
slippage wasn't improved, and got this output histogram when I quit
it.

Its (tvtime) is running here of course.

Nov 29 18:05:45 coyote kernel: 26 1
--------------------
And I note that the 1-26 column of numbers does not seem to add up to
whats being logged above there, which are all 21 and 22 ms bumps
(whatever a bump is)

Is this a helpfull report, or just noise? Subjectively, tvtime is
running with far fewer visible frame glitches than before I started
playing with these patches. A marked improvement IMO.
