SubjectRe: [PATCH] use round_jiffies() for slow work thread pool's 5 second cull timer
From
Yes, you are correct. I misread how round_jiffies_relative() worked.

In this case, the actual timer wait would be between 4.75 and 5.75 seconds (because round_jiffies() rounds < 0.25 seconds down and > 0.25 seconds up). This patch also refactors the mod_timer() logic into a separate helper function.
