ok, please do.

i'm trying to understand your trace:

by 'alien context' do you mean softirq--4? That is the following kernel
thread:

4 ? S 0:00 [softirq-high/0]

handling HI_SOFTIRQ softirqs, which are the 'highprio' tasklets.

it's running at SCHED_FIFO prio 80.

it's probably this use in sound/usb/usbmidi.c:

tasklet_hi_schedule(&port->ep->tasklet);

so what is your observation - if i_usX2Y_usbpcm_urb_complete() is
executed in this tasklet then you are seeing xruns/delays?
