Note that this doesn't generate a stable frequency for the callback.
The (nondeterministic) time spend doing the actual work is added to each
period, this gives an unconditional downward bias to the frequency, but
also makes it very unstable.

You want explicit management of timer->expires, and add MY_LOAD_FREQ
(which is a misnomer) to it and not reset it based on jiffies.
