Not sure what you are talking about. These "random delays" are not for
the interface, but instead to force some events to happen and to make
sure they did.

As the subject states, this is for "ftracetest" which is the selftests
for ftrace.

The usleep is basically a "do something to trigger events", and we
don't want to wait long in doing it.
