    Subjectitimer oddness in 2.6.12
    The patch to fix "setitimer timer expires too early" is causing issues for
    the Helix server. We have a timer processs that updates the server's
    timestamp on an itimer and it expects the signal to be delivered at roughly
    the interval retrieved from getitimer. This is very consistent on every
    platform, including Linux up to 2.6.11, but breaks on 2.6.12. On 2.6.12,
    setting the itimer to 10ms and retrieving the actual interval from getitimer
    reports 10.998ms, but the timer interrupts are consistently delivered at
    roughly 11.998ms. This behavior was pointed out as problematic in the patch

    Would it be possible to resolve this discrepancy for 2.6.13?

    house and four people died.
