lets look at the facts we have so far.

1) When irq accounting is disabled, RT throttling kicks in as

2) With irq accounting the RT throttler does not kick in and the RCU
stall/lockups happen.

Not much, but there is clearly interaction between irq time accounting
and scheduler accounting.

Can you please reduce /proc/sys/kernel/sched_rt_runtime_us in steps of
50000? At least in theory, reduction should bring the throttling back.
