Documentation/timers/timers-howto.txt stated there was a significant
overhead when setting up usleep_range. I studied implementation and
found that schedule_hrtimeout was certainly less than 520000 CPU cycles
that udelay(1) would consume.

It worked. I haven't checked actual delay time. However, machines with
the driver (based on 3.8) are in production since May 2013 without

I've also used this nsleep for driving RTC clock (DS1302) since May

Now I see that my code is a clone of usleep_range(x, x). I will convert
my code to use it.
