If an application can only make use of the first 1 us of every 1 ms, and asks to run only then, the kernel may be able to give it 100% of the time it wants without any system impact; if, on the other hand, it can't tell the kernel, it has to busy-wait through a lot more processor time in order to get any change of being running then, and load the system much more heavily.
What's wrong with nanosleep?
