Description Igor Trindade Oliveira 2011-05-25 11:51:40 PDT
Currently WebKit measures time using the system wallclock time. Implementations that is purely based on the wallclock is prone to large jumps forwards and backwards as the wallclock is adjusted. We will use the monotonic time in animations, Navigation Timining, Thread timers and so on.

This patch effectively adds dead code, so r-.
How do you plan to use this new functionality?

Do other *nix ports already link with librt?
