You should send that one in

This looks wrong. This means hold times of 1ns to 1000000ns trigger the
exceeded 1ms threshold, 1000001 to 2000000 trigger the 2ms one, etc.

Removing the + 999999 gives the correct result:
1000000 - 1999999ns triggers the 1ms threshold
2000000 - 2999999ns triggers the 2ms threshold
etc

Or have I missed something?
