Interesting issue :) IMHO, even though you ask for "jiffies+" a.k.a current time, scheduling delay will make it run in the very very near future. This is plus the fact that I know that timer is running everytime time interrupt is receieved... so IMHO that very near future is actually jiffies+1 (current time + (1/HZ)) I might be wrong here though :) -- regards, Mulyadi Santosa Freelance Linux trainer and consultant blog: the-hydra.blogspot.com training: mulyaditraining.blogspot.com _______________________________________________ Kernelnewbies mailing list Kernelnewbies@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx http://lists.kernelnewbies.org/mailman/listinfo/kernelnewbies
