I'm not familiar with PetaLinux. :(
From my previous experience in measuring the rt-test in the
virtualization environment, I found:
Even though the app. is the only one running on the CPU, the CPU may
be used to handle other interrupts and its context (such as TLB and
cache) might be flushed by other components. When these happen, the
interrupt handling latency can vary a lot.

Hopefully, it helps. :)
