    This field was introduced to have a clear property description. The
    rating field might be used for this, but from a given rating on a
    particular CPU architecture it might be hard to deduce whether this
    clock source is good enough so we can switch to high resolution timer

    is_continous is maybe not the best choice, but a flag field to retrieve
    certain properties would be a good thing to have.
