Good question. I always set up CONFIG_HZ_1000=y, but I also use HPET.
There's a difference regarding to jitter between Hz 1000 and HPET when
using hardware MIDI. I'm unsure if there's a difference between tickless
yes and no. Some people claim that tickless = yes could cause issues.
Most of my kernels where compiled with tickless = yes and I don't think
that issues I got were related to this. I suspect that tickless did
improve MIDI jitter too, but I don't compare same kernels with tickless
yes/no. Dunno! However, IIRC tickless is only used when we use hrtimer
