    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.
