Ironically I think there will be a handful of applications which assume the old, broken behaviour of nanosleep and will misbehave with the new nanosleep. Last time I checked nanosleep rounded the requested delay up to the next tick and then added another tick for good measure. Actually sleeping the requested amount will undoubtedly expose some application bugs.
