I kicked off a test with your v7.2 series first.
I have the idle poll loop rework in the mix, too.

I will check the last 3 patches bit by bit through
today, and will let you know which causes the issue.

I will also try to figure out what the issue is,
if I can :)

The workload is memcache style, with equal
queries coming in to both the system running
the control kernel, and the system running
the test kernel.

On the control system, CPU utilization is
around 75%, while on the test system it is
up to 85% - for the same number of queries.
