I believe 'min' is unmodified throughout, and therefore 'kmin' is
computed to be the same minimum timeout in each loop. Shouldn't this be
decreasing on each iteration of the loop? (i.e., either your compute
'kmin' differently here, or you recompute 'min' based on the elapsed
time?)

I think Andreas had similar comments, but it seemed to me like
ktime_before() might be nicer. But (as Andreas did) you might get into
(premature?) micro-optimizations down that path, and I'm certainly not
an expert there.
