+ * Latency for FIFO fetches is dependent on several factors:

+ * - chipset
+ * - current MCH state
+ * It can be fairly high in some situations, so here we assume a fairly
+ * pessimal value. It's a tradeoff between extra memory fetches (if we
+ * set this value too high, the FIFO will fetch frequently to stay full)
+ * and power consumption (set it too low to save power and we might see
+ * FIFO underruns and display "flicker").
+ *
+ * A value of 5us seems to be a good balance; safe for very low end
+ * platforms but not overly aggressive on lower latency configs.
