Any idea at what time this started?
Two candidates I can think of:
Date: Thu Sep 25 12:46:39 2014 -0700
Merge remote-tracking branch 'origin/topic/jsiwek/improve_comm_loop'
Merge: 3caecad 265438b
Date: Tue Sep 9 12:35:38 2014 -0500
Merge remote-tracking branch 'origin/topic/robin/pktsrc'
If you're up for some experiments, you could switch to versions just
before these merges and see if that helps.
