"suckage" ? Hehe ... the suckage should rather be stuff that cannot
sleep. Arbitrary latencies and jitter caused by too much code wanting
to be "atomic" when unnecessary are a bad thing.

In the case of clocks like the aspeed where we have to wait for a
rather long stabilization delay, way too long to legitimately do a non-
sleepable delay with a lock held, do we need to do everything in
prepare() then ?
