If CLOCK_MONOTONIC in Linux actually worked according to POSIX spec, then a timer based on this clock could be used to fix this problem.
(POSIX says that CLOCK_MONOTONIC measures time elapsed since "an unspecified point in the past", and further "This point does not change after system start-up time.". On Linux however, CLOCK_MONOTONIC stops while the system is suspended, which is clearly nonconforming).
