AFAIK professional audio apps have the toughest limit of sub 10ms. 120MHz
screens impose a stricter limit on display pipeline too to finish its frame in
8ms.

1ms is too short and approaches PREEMPT_RT realm.

Is it possible to expand on the use case here? What application requires this
constraint?
