hm. Would be nice to somehow find a condition that triggers it. One 
possibility is that something else is starving the keyboard handling 
path. Right now it's handled via workqueues, which live in keventd. Do 
things improve if you chrt keventd up to prio 99? Also i'd chrt the 
keyboard IRQ thread up to prio 99 too.

the other possibility is some IRQ handling bug - those are usually 
specific to the IRQ controller, so try turning off (or on) the IO-APIC 
[if the box has an IO-APIC], does that change anything?
