Thanks - actually this is my first patch, so positive feedback much

Concerning the bool for 'use_irq': I first had it that way but then
opted for the bit field of length 1 as I wasn't sure whether bool would
get optimized to the same level by the compiler.

I'm a bit irritated by your comment concerning the msecs_to_jiffies()
call, as my patch indeed moves this call from the #define to the code.
Did you mean it the other way round, then?
My reason to move it was that I need to work with microseconds for the
IRQ-less operation mode, and jiffies are only required in one place for
the IRQ mode.

Best regards
