I have applied the timer.c patch
to a 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.
