You dropped this message, any particular reason ?

Why can't it be simple like loop of 100 * msleep(1) instead of loop of
10 * msleep(10). The above initial busy wait for 1 ms looks too much
optimised for your setup where it takes 50-500us, what if it take just
over 1 ms ?

We need more generic solution.
