I checked sound/core/hrtimer.c of a current linux kernel source and I
don't see any limits of 1000 or 1024. And when I check on my system with
`cat /proc/asound/timers` I see the resolution of the system timer is
1000 µs, so 1 ms (which I think equals the 1000 HZ kernel setting I use)
while the HR timer has a resolution of 0.001 µs, so 1 ns. If I search
for .resolution in /proc/timer_list I see that same value, so 1 ns. So
my guess is that snd-hrtimer goes way beyond 1000 HZ and doesn't seem to
have a hard-coded limit of itself.
