I have similar problem on my Xeon5000 quad core system with 7.1 PRERELEASE / AMD64. Tried anybody to change scheduler from ULE to 4BSD?
I tried to change some sysctl variables, but no success.
Thanks for help.

I got load average around 0.5, and top show something like this
"1021 processes: 1 running, 1020 sleeping
CPU states: 4.9% user, 0.0% nice, 3.6% system, 0.9% interrupt,
90.6% idle" - this all is ok.
then once in 2-5 minutes, there for 2-3 seconds are:
"1020 processes:67 running, 912 sleeping, 1 zombie, 40 lock
CPU states: 3.0% user, 0.0% nice, 96.7% system, 0.3% interrupt,
0.0% idle" - this is the problem.
after this load average is 20-30 and dropping in 2-3min to 0.5. during
this time system is very slow. even ssh session is freezing.
most of processes are fastcgi/php, so there is not one big resource
