Is it guaranteed that this hardware part will only ever be used on systems
where this is true? How big a bug would it be if somebody tried to glue this
touchscreen into some random embedded-ARM where HZ was something else, and
should this be computed as a function of HZ instead of hardcoding 7?

It *looks* like the intent of the schedule_delayed_work() call is "let's run
this once a tick when we're awake *anyhow*" - but looking at the code, I can't
convince myself a rounding error in computing 'interval' won't schedule 1ms
before or after the next tick would have been. Isn't there a better API with
slack timers or something that would do a better "next tick" job?
