i have one concern about this that i talked to takashi about when we
were in bordeaux. it seems to me that the ALSA xrun debug stuff is
measuring things when the interrupt handler for the ALSA device
executes and detects an xrun. if the handler itself was delayed, then
the stack trace for its execution doesn't or might not show what
caused the delay. this means, perhaps, that we need to be rather
careful interpreting these traces.
