Wasn't involved in the other thread, so my apologies if this has
already been answered/stated, but are you using the realtime kernel
patches? If you run RT-Preempt, then you can set the priority of the
kernel thread that is handling the serial interrupt high than all the
other kernel threads, which should improve your latencies... See
https://rt.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/Main_Page for more info.
