Boot-time stuff is unlikely to have much done about it. I highly suspect
this is the kmap_atomic() trick for pagecache writes. 1ms is probably
more than your box can handle if so.

If you're getting these in find_get_page() and buffered_rmqueue() either
your box is definitely too slow to handle 1ms or sched_clock()'s results
are questionable on your machine. cpufreq?

Wild guess is that you took an IRQ in dec_preempt_count() and that threw
your results off. Let me know if the patch below helps at all. My guess
is it'll cause more apparent problems than it solves.

ioctl() is typically grossly inefficient and even involves the BKL.
