The changelog suggests (and a very brief looks seems to confirm) that
this code could be much smaller by using hrtimer_nanosleep().

The implementation as presented seems to only call ->wait_interval()
when the timer arms, which seems like a bug, we should always call it,
regardless of whether we're on a period boundary.
