I don't fully agree with the interval behaviour either, but here one could
at least say it's correct on average. Since hrtimer is also used for
nanosleep(), which I consider more important (as e.g. posix timer), this
one should at least be correct and consistent with previous 2.6 releases.
I don't mind fixing it properly, but just omitting the rounding here is
simply not correct.
