No, any syscall can end up blocking/scheduling there are no exceptions.
But blocking doesn't mean its non-deterministic, esp. when coupled with
things like PI.

But you do have to treat system resources as such, that is they can (and
will) create cross-cpu dependencies, if you do not take that into
account you will of course be surprised.
