Ok, 500 us is not so long delay here compared to benefits but it would
be good to have a little revisit comment for future reference. I think
that by default 100 us provides enough time for two CLKSRG cycles but
due some unknown PM related, clock gating etc. reason it must be
extended to 500 us now.
