Subject: [PATCH] drivers:soc:fsl:qbman:qman.c: Sleep instead of stuck hacking jiffies.
Date: Sat, 29 Apr 2017 21:46:04 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1493495164-8658-1-git-send-email-karim.eshapa@gmail.com> (raw)

Convert the jiffies into usecs then use it with usleep_range
such that instead of stuck doing nothing until action happens,
sleep with range improves responsiveness and power usage
and avoid hacking jiffies. it's used for approximate time.
You can check /kernel/time/timer.c.
