    Here's a 171 usec latency from ext3_free_blocks:

    preemption latency trace v1.0.1
    latency: 171 us, entries: 2 (2)
    | task: evolution/863, uid:1000 nice:0 policy:0 rt_prio:0
    => started at: ext3_free_blocks+0x1d0/0x4b0
    => ended at: ext3_free_blocks+0x229/0x4b0
    00000001 0.000ms (+0.000ms): ext3_free_blocks (ext3_free_data)
    00000001 0.167ms (+0.167ms): sub_preempt_count (ext3_free_blocks)

    Also I have noticed a pattern with the XFree86 schedule() latencies,
    they all have a section like this:

    04000002 0.003ms (+0.000ms): effective_prio (recalc_task_prio)
    04000002 0.003ms (+0.000ms): enqueue_task (schedule)
    00000002 0.006ms (+0.003ms): __switch_to (schedule)
    00000002 0.088ms (+0.082ms): finish_task_switch (schedule)
    00010002 0.090ms (+0.001ms): do_IRQ (finish_task_switch)
    00010003 0.091ms (+0.000ms): mask_and_ack_8259A (do_IRQ)

    04000002 0.002ms (+0.000ms): effective_prio (recalc_task_prio)
    04000002 0.002ms (+0.000ms): enqueue_task (schedule)
    00000002 0.005ms (+0.002ms): __switch_to (schedule)
    00000002 0.067ms (+0.062ms): finish_task_switch (schedule)
    00010002 0.068ms (+0.001ms): do_IRQ (finish_task_switch)
    00010003 0.069ms (+0.000ms): mask_and_ack_8259A (do_IRQ)

    I presume the 04000002 -> 00000002 is some interrupt being unmasked (or
    interrupts being globally enabled), then there's a 60-80 usec latency in
