Extended Events latch_class value:
Maps to the SSB_MAPPING_MANAGER map_value in sys.dm_xe_map_values.
The map_key value in sys.dm_xe_map_values is 95 in 2008 and 2008 R2, and 92 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 contention point.
