Read Copy Update Preemption

I switched on the RCU Preemption in the Linux 2.6.25.7 kernel and suddenly noticed stuttering video-playback in mplayer. Seems that sometimes it didn't get its data in time anymore. After I added the -cache 4096 parameter, it was fixed. But I really wonder how that could be, as there was nothing going on in the background.
