That's weird.  All I'm seeing between 70286688e5ad and end-of-mm is:

tools-objtool-makefile-dont-assume-sync-checksh-is-executable.patch
ipc-mqueue-add-missing-error-code-in-init_mqueue_fs.patch

vfs-remove-might_sleep-from-clear_inode.patch

mm-remove-duplicate-includes.patch

mm-remove-unneeded-kallsyms-include.patch
hrtimer-remove-unneeded-kallsyms-include.patch
genirq-remove-unneeded-kallsyms-include.patch

mm-memblock-memblock_is_map-region_memory-can-be-boolean.patch
lib-lockref-__lockref_is_dead-can-be-boolean.patch
kernel-cpuset-current_cpuset_is_being_rebound-can-be-boolean.patch
kernel-resource-iomem_is_exclusive-can-be-boolean.patch
kernel-module-module_is_live-can-be-boolean.patch
kernel-mutex-mutex_is_locked-can-be-boolean.patch
crash_dump-is_kdump_kernel-can-be-boolean.patch

fix-const-confusion-in-certs-blacklist.patch
fix-read-buffer-overflow-in-delta-ipc.patch

kasan-rework-kconfig-settings.patch

sparc64-ng4-memset-32-bits-overflow.patch

lib-crc-ccitt-add-ccitt-false-crc16-variant.patch


And I don't see how any of those can cause this.  Did anything else
change, like context switch rates, interrupt rates, etc?
