    Subjecta faster way to gettimeofday?
    I have a program that I very often need to calculate the current
    time, with milisecond accuracy. I've been using gettimeofday(),
    but gprof shows it's taking a significant (10% or so) amount of
    time. Is there a faster (and perhaps less portable?) way to get
    the time information on x86? My program runs as root, so should
    have any permissions it needs to use some backdoor hack if that
    helps!

    Thanks,
    Ben
