High CPU because of linux_iosd-imag. 
We did not see any CPU with show process cpu sorted but  "monitor  platform  so pro r0" shows 
linux_iosd-imag is showing close to 92% CPU.

During high CPU, scheduler also reaches close to 60%

Statistics for IOS scheduler activities:

2592946 IOS Scheduler invocation, 88017 idle

Conditions for this process to go high is still unknown and under investigation. This apperas to be a very rare corner case which is happening on one particular router.
