Actually I did a test build back then (still floating around on my phone)
and everything was working fine. I didn't notice the performance drop.
Maemo doesn't need pcm_play_lock() as the locking is done
on the gstreamer object level.

Anyhow, it turned out to be the software mixing and you already
gave the solution: After an increase of the software mixer buffer size
from 256 to 2048, CPU usage is back to normal.

Is that a size we still can live with?

Also have a look at FS #12421, that squeezes out
a bit more performance on RaaA.

Thanks for you effort not to break maemo when you commited r30097.
