Just for completeness -- Linux already had a way to profile latencies
since quite some time. It's little known unfortunately and doesn't
work for modules since it's a special mode in the old non modular kernel

You enable CONFIG_SCHEDSTATS and boot with profile=sleep and then you can
use the readprofile command to read the data. Information can be reset with 
echo > /proc/profile

There's also a profile=sched to profile the scheduler which works even

Latencytop will be probably a little more user friendly though.
