Not really. An accelerated CPU clock exaggerates the slowdown factor,
given the fixed 0.7 MHz CIA clock.

The "(ticks > jiffy_ticks / 2)" conditional won't make anything worse even
if interrupt latency is already too high, so I'm inclined towards the more
prudent option. This patch series is already complicated enough.

In anycase, I'd prefer not to speculate about interrupt priorities or
latencies when the list probably has people who know the answers.
