The stamps are written by my driver and 'wait/start' is the stamp
immediately before interuptible_sleep_on, while 'wait/end' is in the
source line after interuptible_sleep_on. Whenever the log says 'timer',
wake_up is called, i.e. we should see a 'wait/end' immediately
afterwards (because the process is SCHED_FIFO), like at stamp[50],
stamp[51]. There would probably be no 'read' stamp, because no data is
yet available from the hardware, but certainly 'wait/end' should show up
immediatly after a 'timer' stamp.
