Setting sleep interval less than 10 mS on a Linux PC?

I suspect this is a system question, but I will ask anyway. I am using
the Python sleep method (time.sleep) and on a PC running RedHat 7.0
Linux, it has a 10 millisecond lower limit. Below that it still wakes
up every 10 milliseconds, regardless of the argument. I gather from a
little reading, that 10 mS is the default miniumumlinux sleep interval.
Is there a way from Python to set this to a shorter interval (1 mS would
be nice), without recompiling the linux kernel?
