    'foo jiffies'?

    It behaves like all the other time_(after|before) macros. "Compare a
    given time T against some other time X".

    T is always the first argument to these macros, it's never the current
    time. This is consistent.

    And jiffies, the X here, is a well-known global variable. :)

    The banner comment above the macro group should have clarified the
    misunderstanding, btw.
