Does the hardware give us any idea how long we need to wait?

HZ is better I guess but it's still a long time.

Yes.

Yeah I guess it depends what you're doing. Are you comparing the code to
the spec, where seeing the name is probably what you want?

Or are you debugging the code running on hardware, where you have a dump
of register values or a trace etc. and you don't have any names just hex
values.

At least in my experience I spend more time doing the latter, so being
able to match the hex values in the code up with values I see in memory
or in registers is preferable.

But it's your code so I'll stop whining about that macro :)


cheers
