Would increasing the CONFIGURE_MICROSECONDS_PER_TICK define reduce 
interrupt latency? I have a large number of interrupts happening and was 
wondering that by increasing this time, the kernel would spend less time 
servicing the task scheduler?, thus giving the external interrupts I 
receive a bigger slice of the Pie.

It is currently set at 1000, so would increasing it to 2000 
theoretically give better performance for interrupts?
