My thought when I read about this problem is that PostgreSQL is causing it with their user-space locking and so PostgreSQL needs to fix it. Perhaps it should pin its processes to particular cores, ensuring that it spreads out across all the cores. It could also nice its worker processes while leaving the dispatcher at normal. Or it could negative-nice (would that be making the process mean?) its dispatcher.
