It's a long time since I've looked at this code, but it looks like
this is what the fix_time function in that file is trying to achieve -
i.e. ensure that 0 <= msecs < 1000.

Indeed, this is a miliseconds range and that would be somewhat
narrower than a microseconds range allowed by setitimer().  A small
problem is that fix_time is not doing what is advertised unless
changed in such way:
