Please inform the customer that /proc/sys/vm/kscand_work_percent is a tunable
parameter that can be set between 1 and 100 inclusive. Setting it to a lower
value causes kscand to run more often and do less work every time it runs.
Lower values will result is shorter pauses however the overhead or scheduling
kscand more often might result in a slight performance degradation. Please have
the customer try lowering this parameter below 10 to see if the pauses disappear
