    Damn. It's your compiler turning a while-loop into a divide. Which
    likely isn't even an optimization, but whatever.

    John: I think that while-loop needs to be something like

    if (raw_nsecs >= NSEC_PER_SEC) {
    u64 raw_secs = raw_nsecs;
    raw_nsecs = do_div(raw_secs, NSEC_PER_SEC);
    raw_time.tv_sec += taw_secs;
    raw_time.tc_nsec = raw_nsecs;

    which is sad and overly complicated, but the simple thing seems to get
    messed up by the compiler.

    Untested. Maybe I got the complex do_div() semantics wrong. Somebody
    needs to check.
