Hmm, hardware interrupt priorities must not impact the worst-case
latency if I-pipe acks and mask them appropriately (the worst case is
when multiple interrupts happen in a row, not at the same time). But
this statement is not based on knowledge about potential pitfalls of
this arch. Are there specialities that require this tweaking?

Which versions were you using for both tests? Do you still have the
involved .configs?

Again, what would simplify the discussion enormously is a function
back-trace of the measured maximum latencies, just like "latency -f"
generates. The numbers will become worse, for sure, but we would gain a
very good overview about what is executed and what delayed which kernel.
If you see a chance to perform such a test and you need some hints on
the tracer setup (or did you use it before?), please let us know!
