Hi,

i just applied the new preempt-timing patch and i made the observation
that if jackd is not running then mlocking 500megs of ram doesn't cause
the preempt-timing [thresh = 1000] to report anything.

But when jackd is running i can easily cause an xrun by mlocking even
only 50megs. In this case also a critical section report is printed by
the preempt-timing:

So it seems that the combination of the two is somehow triggering this
behaviour:

I also tried to disable syslogd and looked into dmesg to see the xrun
reports. i don't know if they differ in any essential way:
