FWIW, Alex Shi's patch:

http://lkml.kernel.org/r/1308029185.15392.147.camel@sli10-conroe

Improves the situation to:

3745 root 20 0 26664 1460 1212 S 18.5 0.0 0:01.28 exim
39 root -2 19 0 0 0 S 4.9 0.0 0:02.83 rcuc6
105 root -2 19 0 0 0 S 4.9 0.0 0:02.79 rcuc19
7 root -2 19 0 0 0 S 3.9 0.0 0:02.70 rcuc0
13 root -2 19 0 0 0 S 3.9 0.0 0:02.54 rcuc1
19 root -2 19 0 0 0 S 3.9 0.0 0:02.76 rcuc2
24 root -2 19 0 0 0 S 3.9 0.0 0:02.75 rcuc3
...

And throughput increases like:

-tip 260.092 messages/sec/core
-tip+sirq-rcu 271.078 messages/sec/core
