There was a recent patch (at the RFC stage) adding CLOCK_TAI to the kernel. The implementation is convoluted (John Stultz prefers if it is built using the current abstractions, which also had a problem with CLOCK_MONOTONIC pausing during a leap second), so it might still be bug-prone. Actually testing the damn clock subsystem ahead of time, and after reviewing any related commits, could compensate for that.
