    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.

    bye, Roman
