Tremendous reduction? It should now be exactly zero when idle.

Hmm, the CPU utilization reduction is apparently not thaaaat
tremendous on ARM...

Seems the mixing code for ARM could use quite a  bit of
optimization. Hmm, would it be possible to supply me with some
profiling data? (gprof, callgrind)

Does your CPU have an FPU? Did these two streams need resampling?

You can disable the CPU limit stuff by passing --no-cpu-limit to PA.
