I wasn't sure if that was safe here, so I used the non-interruptible
version. I'll change it when I redo the patch.
Is it worth it creating ssleep_interruptible() just for this one call?

The currently running version has 1000. 100 is probably better.

I'll submit a new patch once it's clear which version of the first patch
goes in.
