I have applied the timer.c patch
to a 22.214.171.124 kernel. The situation is exactly as before. aplaymidi
blocked and chronyd showing high CPU usage as reported by top.
The comments by TimMann about his patch looked very plausible and I
wonder if there are not several race conditions lurking in the alsa
drivers. Perhaps another is ultimately responsible for this problem?
For the moment, at least. I am out of ideas of what more I can do to
help given my limited familiarity with the kernel, alsa and chrony. Of
course, I am happy to try out any suggestions or explore further with
gdb if that would help.
