I don't understand how a specific piece of hardware directly leads to
ring buffer processing timeouts, or multi-minute thread map processing

You'll have to explain all of the details of your test scenerio, and
the exact problems triggers, which caused you to write these patches
which causes serious regressions for what I consider a core simple use
case of perf top.

And that's running perf top during a parallel kernel build.
