CLOCK_MONOTONIC wouldn't satisfy my needs, because it makes the duration
of execution of a piece of code too depend on OS's scheduling choices.\
In my use case I need to run two chunks of code and make sure their
run-time is not "wildly" different, but with wall-clock time (and
CLOCK_MONOTONIC is close enough to wallclock to suffer from the same
problem) any context switch in the middle of one of the two runs can
cause such "wildly" different results, including make the slow code
appear to be much faster than the fast one.
