Unfortunately not, after disabling the printf and fflush, my very first run
resulted in:

ITERATION 0
-------------------------------
Scheduling Latency
-------------------------------

Running 10000 iterations with a period of 5 ms
Expected running time: 50 s

ITERATION DELAY(US) MAX_DELAY(US) FAILURES
--------- --------- ------------- --------


PERIOD MISSED!
scheduled delta: 4078 us
actual delta: 14213 us
latency: 10135 us
---------------------------------------
previous start: 42050139 us
now: 42051059 us
scheduled start: 42045000 us
next scheduled start is in the past!


Start Latency: 99 us: PASS
Min Latency: 8 us: PASS
Avg Latency: 8 us: PASS
Max Latency: 10139 us: FAIL

What is it about this dump that made you suspect the printf? Or was it just
that printing the trace seemed to trigger a failure - so it seemed reasonable
that the process may have been blocked on writing to the console? I could
see that causing a failure like the one below, but not like the one I posted
above. (The one above has no printfs between the time measurements
surrounding the clock_nanosleep() call and it overslept by 10ms). Also,
shouldn't I have seen something in the oprofile reports I posted earlier if
the printf was causing the latencies?

Thanks for the comments, thoughts, and suggestions.
