Hi Greg, No I haven't tested it, I don't have the hw. I dug depeer in to the usleep_range
u64 delta = (u64)(max - min) * NSEC_PER_USEC;
* The @delta argument gives the kernel the freedom to schedule the
* actual wakeup to a time that is both power and performance friendly.
* The kernel give the normal best effort behavior for "@expires+@delta",
* but may decide to fire the timer earlier, but no earlier than @expires.
My understanding is that keeping delta 0 (min=max=20) would be equivalent.
I can revise the patch to usleep_range(20, 20) or usleep_range(20, 21) for a 1 usec delta.
What do you suggest?
