Please help Newbie question

Ive been trying to introduce delays in packet
processing by using code like this in a netfilter

j = jiffies + RB_RTT_DELAY;
       while (jiffies < j)

However the system hangs when i do this and yet this
is an example from the Linux Device Driver book.
Please do let me know what I am doing wrong.
I suspect this forum is a little too advanced to
answer questions like mine. If this is the case i'd
also be grateful if you could point me to the correct
newgroup or mailing list
