    I increased the value of HZ to 256 and then 1024, but nothing seems to
    change. With add_timer + struct timer_list, I still get 100 jiffies
    per second (whenever the timer expires, I increase the number of
    interrupts received and every 10000 interrupts I printk the number of
    interrupts and the current value of jiffies)

    With queue_task + struct tq_struct, the results don't seem to change

    I thought something would change when changing HZ in

    It's my first experience with drivers in Linux, so I might be doing
    something stupid... I'm using Alessandro Rubini's LDD book as a

    Thank you for your time and help,
