so you use

static inline void __delay(unsigned long loops)
__asm__ __volatile__ (
: "=r" (loops)
: "0" (loops));

static inline void __udelay(unsigned long usecs)

This is much better than before, but is far from exact in the __udelay()
case. Please take a look at init/calibrate.c and how other architectures
use loops_per_jiffy if you don't have an exact time source you can use.

If you have a time source with microsecond resolution or better, just loop
until the amount of microseconds has expired.
