Good gravy. They're not asking -questions for a fix, they're asking
for guidance on how to isolate the root cause of the problem. Quoth
the OP: "*what are we missing?*"

That is perfectly germane for -questions and only /after/ that
question is answered would it be appropriate to use send-pr. Using 
send-pr to submit a poorly defined problem ("too much load") is not 
going to result in a project committer magically finding and fixing 
an unknown OS bug.

That's a reasonable assumption actually. Sorry I don't have any 
specific suggestions for you except to second the motion that you 
ignore Ted's assertion that you should give up on -questions. It's 
entirely possible that there's a tunable knob or app compilation 
option that will help you out.
