I don't really see why. Low delay does not imply short buffers - so in fact, in 
low delay case, the buffer should never be even close to full, and thus there 
never should be a need to wait.

And if there is a need to way because of "high" delay / advance, then the 
thread will be descheduled, whether it is for a time-out, or for an event.
This patches just forces an interrupt, which potentially inhibits power
