SubjectPOSIX.1b timers comments
From
Date
I appreciate seeing finally kernel support for this but have a few
problems with the actual implementation:

- CLONE_ITIMERS

The meaning of the flag should be reverted. Since sharing itimers
among all threads in a process is the POSIX behaviour this bit must
be set. But it is not in existing implementation for obvious reasons.

This is a general problem with extensions to the clone interface.


- MAX_ITIMERS

This should be TIMER_MAX. POSIX does not define MAX_ITIMERS.


- There is no DELAYTIMER_MAX definition.

This might be missing since the implementation is not yet finished
but in case this is not the reason please add it.
