Well, that's hard evidence.

Okay, I see that now.

Maybe it would be enough to call erts_deliver_time() only if do_wait is

Or if that fails, create a new mutex, say erts_timedelivery_mtx, use
erts_smp_mtx_trylock() on it, and only proceed with the time delivery,
from the thread that succeeds in obtaining the lock. This should keep
do_time relatively fresh.

Hope you don't mind me throwing my silly ideas at you. That is because I
am excited about your great work. I would like erlang in sockets heavy
pumping applications to outperform verything.

I think, I'll try to build and test otp on my own, too. After all, how
hard can it be ;-)
