    Rik van Riel correctly suggested to merge it in 2.5 first. I have a
    forward-ported version, but it has a minor locking issue on UP.

    Albert Cahalan suggested to get rid of locking at all by only updating the
    high word from the timer interupt. I will try to code this on the weekend.

    I'm sorry I had no time for lobbying the merge in the last month.
