According to Ignatios Souvatzis:
Thanks for all the definite answers on this one :-) I was reasonably
certain it was wrong...
>Somebody should fix it.
I will fix it - it's biting me, I have the hardware to test it so I
don't think it unreasonable that I get this fixed. The only question
I have is if tsleep cannot be called, what can I use? The particular
function is looping (possibly infinitely - aaargh) on a register
status change and is using tsleep to throttle the poll interval.
BTW If/when I do fix this do I just commit it to -current? (i.e. is
that the right thing for _me_ to be doing :-)
