if you're answering my question: I'm not guessing that much: I looked
at lockstat output, and right there at the top we see i86_mwait
consuming 45%(!) ... so, popped that into google, the link I quote is
the first to appear, and the description matches well enough that I'd
give it a try.

Since Gernot is seeing the issue, maybe he wants to pitch in here?
