I have bisected the problem: 98a8e323 is the result ("SUNRPC: Add a
helper rpcauth_lookup_generic_cred()"). 5c691044 is ok.

See the attached oprofile annotation data for both commits. I guess
that the function rpcauth_lookup_credcache() is waiting for a spinlock
too often and too long. Trond, any idea?

Harry: added you to Cc because your problem sounds similar.
