Hmm, that's very similar to the issue Len is seing on his quad socket WM.

But I can't see it on my dual socket SNB, neither does PeterZ on his
dual socket WM machine. Heisenbugs ....

Can you offline all cpus except core 0, enable all trace events (nop

that your tracebuffer is big enough to cover the full thing.

Thanks,
