Subject[BUG] nanosleep() granularity bumps up in 2.5.64
	Hi!

When playing with select() timeout values I found that granularity
of nanosleep() in 2.5.64 kernel bumps to 256 msec. Trying to get finer
granularity it ends up sleeping to the next multiple of 256 msec
(only for values > 256 msec): see this (for three last kernels) (measured with
attached program):

nanosleep(2.000): delay = 2.000 s 1.999 s 2.047 s
....
and so on.

In 2.5.63 there is a conversion to POSIX timers, but that change is O.K.
In the 2.5.64 changelog I didn't found any eye-hitting change.

Cheers,
Vita
