usleep() is a libc function and interface should be available
in the Linux-unit. It works independant of the underlying platform.

You could also use the ualarm(), if you need a "callback" style
working. It is in practice, however, equal to set/getitimer().

Please do
  man alarm
  man setitimer
  man usleep

And select whatever you think is good for you. I believe that
most of these libc-functions can be interfaced through Linux-unit.
