I don't think this is acceptable. It's important that all
of the timestamps are as accurate as they were before.
I disagree on that. The window is small and slowing down 99.99999% of all
users who never care about this for this extremely obscure
misdesigned API does not make much sense to me.
We can't change behavior like this. Every time we've tried to
do it, we've been burnt. Remember nonlocal-bind?
I'll try to write up a patch that uses the TSC and lazy conversion
to timeval as soon as I get the rx-all and rx-fcs code happily
into the kernel....
Assuming TSC is very fast and the conversion is accurate enough, I think
this can give good results....
