Unlike Amazon EC2, which is priced by the hour, AWS Lambda is
metered in increments of 100 milliseconds.

So I guess you want the accurate timeout in order to support billing?
In any case, even with the old wheel you didn't have guarantees WRT
timeout latency, and so the proper way for the application to handle
this is to use a timerfd together with HIGH_RES_TIMERS, and PREEMPT_RT
in order to have sub-millisecond latency.

Thanks,
Richard
