Re: [take12 0/3] kevent: Generic event handling mechanism.

I wonder whether designing-in a millisecond granularity is the right thing
to do. If in a few years the kernel is running tickless with high-res clock
interrupt sources, that might look a bit lumpy.

I'd second that - when working on DCCP I've done a lot of the work in
microseconds and it made quite a difference instead of milliseconds
because of it's design.

I haven't followed kevents in great detail but it sounds like
something that could be useful for me with higher resolution timers
than milliseconds.
