Re: FW: Bug#641832: bizarre behavior of timer_settime on kfbsd
really needs a fractional second?) I'll also clone the bug over to libc
for a better fix, as I think it really needs to be handled there because
trying to work around the problem means making assumptions about the
implementation that I'm not sure are/will be valid.
I already thought about possible fix in libc side.
The problem is that the precision of absolute time
and relative time is the same.
What should we do with one-shot timer,
when now+delay > max(time_t) ?
And what should we do with repeating timer,
when now+10*delay > max(time_t)
I.e. man setitimer says "On Linux kernels before 2.6.16 timer is silently
truncated to this ceiling value".
Should we do the same with timer_settime() ?
