The short answer is - I do not know exactly :-) .

The long answer is - my goal is to keep servo motor stable under the
high system load. I was unable to find any concrete numbers regarding
the tolerance level of the no-name servo motor. So I am just
experimenting. My recent observations, presented in the blog I've
mentioned in the original post, suggest that 20-30micro-seconds jitter
will force my concrete servo to start the movements.

I was unable to further reduce jitter, so maybe this number is
actually lower. I will try to implement what Gilles suggested (using
timer api) and see if I can a) further reduce jitter; and b) if this
jitter will be small enough to prevent servo from shaking.
