[New-bugs-announce] [issue12822] NewGIL should use CLOCK_MONOTONIC if possible.

New submission from INADA Naoki <songofacandy at gmail.com>:

Using CLOCK_MONOTONIC is better than CLOCK_REALTIME (default) for GIL
because settimeofday() may break the pthread_cond_timedwait().

Attached patch uses CLOCK_MONOTONIC and clock_gettime. But I don't know
how to write appropriate configure script.
"-lrt" is also needed to use clock_gettime() but I don't know how to add
it to LIBS.
