So just as a heads up, while this patch *greatly* improved the
situation, apparently the occasional 7ms spikes (again, much better
then 80ms!) still seen are causing trouble when compared w/ the 4.1 or
earlier kernels (which I think kept things sub-ms - Dmitry, please
correct me).

So I wanted to dampen my enthusiasm a touch for this, as there may yet
further improvements needed. I'll try to get some more info on this
as soon as I have details.

thanks
