This is where my bogometer triggered.  There's way too many platforms
where 1 msec timeout is a sheer fantasy.  If you cannot make it perform
well with a 10-msec timeout then I don't think it's going to be at all

Now I know that newer Linux kernels tend to ship with 1KHz scheduler
tick rate, so there's a useful set of platforms where you could make it
work even so, but I'm not really satisfied with saying "this facility is
only usable if you have a fast kernel tick rate" ...
