Actually it can be better iwith respect to jitter to let the hrtimer
subsystem use an existing timer event than to have a close by second event
and the accuracy is determined by the non-atomic context anyway -
so while the proposed delay extension might be excessive in your case
I would still suggest to try to get away from a range of 0 - even if
you only end up with (1000,1050) that would be an advantage for the
timer subsystem.

thx!
