Subject[PATCH] Fix for sys_nanosleep() in 2.4.16

For many of us, the kernel thread scheduling resolution is
10ms (see getitimer(2)). By adding 1 jiffy to the time to
sleep in sys_nanosleep(), threads are sleeping 10ms too long.
timespec_to_jiffies() does a good job at returning the
appropriate number of jiffies to sleep. There is no need to
add one for good measure.
