Could you run the following program and sent me the output? The precision
of the REALTIME clock should be the same as the HPET device.

 * Display Timers

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <time.h>

void pr(int clock,const char *n)
        struct timespec tv,res;

        printf("%25s=% 11d.%09d resolution=% 2d.%09d\n",n,tv.tv_sec,tv.tv_nsec,res.tv_sec,res.tv_nsec);

int main(char argc, char *argv[])
        struct timespec tv;

        gettimeofday((struct timeval *)&tv);
        tv.tv_nsec = tv.tv_nsec*1000;
        printf("          Gettimeofday() =% 11d.%09d\n",tv.tv_sec,tv.tv_nsec);
