Subject[PATCH] Input: joystick: gf2k - change msleep to usleep_range for small msecs
Date
msleep(1~20) may not do what the caller intends, and will often sleep longer.
(~20 ms actual sleep for any value given in the 1~20ms range)
This is not the desired behaviour for many cases like device resume time,
device suspend time, device enable time, connection time, probe time,
loops, retry logic, etc
msleep is built on jiffies / legacy timers which are not precise whereas
usleep_range is build on top of hrtimers so the wakeups are precise.
Thus, change msleep to usleep_range for precise wakeups.

For example:
On a machine with tick rate / HZ as 100, msleep(4) will make the process to
sleep for a minimum period of 10 ms whereas usleep_range(4000, 4100) will make
sure that the process does not sleep for more than 4100 us or 4.1ms
