rtems_timer_server_xx would be the ones going to the TIME Server.

But 1/3 seems quite excessive. I would assume one of your timer server
routines is doing something unexpectedly heavy CPU-wise.

I don't think there is any instrumentation in the server which would help.
Measuring the execution time of each invocation is what comes to mind. My
first thought is that this would be a nice debug option for timers. But I
am not sure how good this would be for ISR style.
