    SubjectRe: Microsecond Resolution Timers

    a few technical comments about the patch at
    http://hegel.ittc.ukans.edu/projects/utime/utime-linux-2.0.22.patch

    - 10 millisecond is hardcoded at many places, maybe it would be better to
    use 'tick' (eg. i frequently use 1000 Hz timer interrupts, when
    profiling).

    - do you think this patch could be somehow integrated into Finn Gangstad's
    new and very fast timers implementation? [added in 2.1.24, backported
    to 2.0 in pre-2.0.30].

    - it might be a good idea to make the patch 'seemless', say through a
    CONFIG_ option. add_timer() is called very often and dynamic checking is
    not quite acceptable there.
