Convention in the kernel would be aztTimeOut = HZ / 100 ? : 1;
to be at least one tick (works for HZ even below 100) and is at least 10ms. If you wanted 2 ms then use
aztTimeOut = HZ / 500 ? : 1;
which would give you at least 2ms

Thank you Con for the feedback.

Hmm.. The minimum value should be 2, right?
Otherwise the loop could time out after only a few nanoseconds.. since the loop will then timeout immediately on a clock tick.
Or am I wrong?
