Sure. We've lived with it so far, we can make it last a bit longer...

Same configuration here. And the number of interrupts is pretty
low (less that 20k/s per CPU), so I doubt this is interrupt related.

I wonder whether we could end-up in some form of unmap storm on
completion, with a CPU being starved trying to insert its TLBI
command into the queue.

Anyway, more digging in perspective.

Jazz is not dead. It just smells funny...
