Someone posted a patch on LKML a few years ago and again recently, that started jiffies at -5 minutes instead of 0. That is, the patch would force a jiffy wraparound 5 minutes after boot, every time for all systems. Kernel and driver wraparound bugs would have to be fixed.
Does anyone know if there are plans to merge this in Linux 2.5?
