I wonder what's that status of time namespaces and virtual time(rs) ?

It will be handy for c/r of timers (posix-timers) that I'm working on.
A couple of obstacles off the top of my head:
- Lack of clone flags -- we can use clone_with_pids() for that.
- Fast gettimeofday() via vdso -- perhaps a vdso page per time-ns
(containing the necessary deltas).
Is anyone working on it ?
