    Hmmm, it almost sounds like implementing clock_gettime as a syscall and
    exporting jiffies as CLOCK_MONOTONIC is the way to go, as that gives a
    nanosecond resolution export of jiffies. Then, it would make sense to
    use that as the basis for "when" timeouts. Relative timeouts still have
    a certain simplicity to them that is appealing, though.
