 You say "here again". Was there a time that it went away with kthreads?

Huh, I really don't know for sure, because lately I have not followed -current
very closely (SMPng stability issues, you know), but I heard from someone that
some not-so-distant snapshot doesn't exhibit this misbehaviour. Could I suggest
that we provide some sysctl to disable entropy harvesting in syscons mouse code
at least until you will solve it properly?

 I had mouse jerkiness at the same time as I had the sound glitches. Those 
 were explained as a result of SMPNG IRQ latency (IIRC). Could this be the 
 same problem?

Yes.
