Oh yes! It does :)
Seems like thats the key, at least for the very long and really annoying 

Whats remaining are very short hiccups (some tenths of a second or so) - seems 
to be related to heavy disk load or... well i can't tell exactly from the 
short time NO_HZ is active here.

Thanks so far - this is a HUGE improvment, at least here!

Greetings and have a nice Weekend!
