I don't use APIC, since it never worked good for me.. But i wanted to
report that the mlockall latency still seems to be there.. I can easily
trigger it with mlockall'ing > ~10000kb. Need to recompile with the
preempt-timing patch, but here's an xrun trace that happened when
mlockall'ing 20000kb:

I can also see some of these [sparse they are though]:
