Yes. We still need to fix sampling rate from userspace.

I am talking about ARM Vexpress TC2 (Test Chip) big LITTLE SoC here. Its
not a production type SoC and freq change is a bit slow here. Its really around
1 ms :)

But the real systems may not have this big of latency.

Anyway, how do you come to 100 value in your initial patch. What motivated you
to fix it there?
