    SubjectRe: [PATCH] Revised timerfd() interface
    From
    Date
    Sorry for the late commentary...as I looked this over, one thing popped
    into my mind....

    timerfd() is looking increasingly like a multiplexor system call in
    disguise. There is no form of invocation which uses all of the
    arguments. Are we sure we wouldn't rather have something like:

    timerfd_open(clock);
    timerfd_adjust(fd, new_time, old_time);

    ?
