I understand that throttling mechanism is designed exactly to do this.
But I've observed that, everytime I run the fuzzer, max_sample_rates is
been throttled down to 250 (which is CONFIG_HZ I guess). Doesn't this
mean the interrupt time is somehow increasing gradually? Is that fine?

Here is the sample dmesg:
