It would really be helpful to my driver if there was a mechanism to 
schedule quick timeouts (ie. much less than 1/hz and usually on the
order of 10s of microseconds)?

Currently, some of my driver spin for 1 millisecond (or less) and
I'd like to see the system do something other than reading a CSR
for that time.

Any comments?
