    Subjectcompat_sys_times() bogus until jiffies >= 0.
    compat_sys_times() has bogus return until jiffies is >= 0.  I discovered
    this running LTP within 5 minutes of booting.

    The return result

    return compat_jiffies_to_clock_t(jiffies);

    will return '-1' to user space and set the negated clock_t value to errno.

    I'm not sure what the correct fix for this is. I can come up with a patch
    if anyone has ideas on how to fix it.

    At minimum, perhaps it should return a sane errno value.
