Extended Events latch_class value:
The map_key value in sys.dm_xe_map_values is 138 in 2008 and 2008 R2, and 135 in 2012 and 2014 RTM. After 2014 RTM, you must check the DMV to get the latest value as some map_key values have changed in later builds.
I have not seen this latch be a noticeable contention point.
See the LATCH_EX wait type for more information about latches in general and how to troubleshoot them.
