I don't think the idea here is variable sleep time.  Its more just
giving hardware a little
bit of time to catch up with firmware.  I don't really care about
variable sleep times,
but checkpatch.pl says msleep of less than 20 ms is bad and may result in sleep
times of up to 20 ms for requests of shorter durations.

Should I use udelay instead?  What is the recommended method for sleeping 1 ms?

Thanks for your help.
