Nobody every figured it out if the issue is in the kernel or in the gpsd
code. Or both. Or in Python. Or libc.

esr spent various hours on it and so I've done.
If you have a trivial and reproducible way to trigger the issue, please
show me. So far it happens just random.

Don't forget that we had write_pad for linux for some time before. Its
not like this is a freebsd only problem, maybe it only works in linux as
the cpu speed got faster these days.
