Changes to individual pages
---------------------------

clock_getres.2
    Helge Deller  [Michael Kerrisk]
        Consecutive calls for CLOCK_MONOTONIC may return same value
            Consecutive calls to clock_gettime(CLOCK_MONOTONIC) are guaranteed
            to return MONOTONIC values, which means that they either return
            the *SAME* time value like the last call, or a later (higher) time
            value.
    Eric Rannaud
        Dynamic POSIX clock devices can return other errors
    Michael Kerrisk
        Improve description of CPU-time clocks

        Add an example program
    Michael Kerrisk
        CLOCK_REALTIME_COARSE is not settable
    Michael Kerrisk
        Note that CPU-time clocks are not settable.
            Explicitly note that CLOCK_PROCESS_CPUTIME_ID and
            CLOCK_PROCESS_CPUTIME_ID are not settable.

        clock_nanosleep() also supports CLOCK_BOOTTIME

clock_nanosleep.2
timer_create.2
timerfd_create.2
    Michael Kerrisk
        Add various missing errors
            Mostly verified by testing and reading the code.

            There is unfortunately quite a bit of inconsistency across API~s:

                              clock_gettime  clock_settime  clock_nanosleep  timer_create  timerfd_create

            CLOCK_THREAD_CPUTIME_ID   y        n (EINVAL)     n (EINVAL [2])   y             n (EINVAL)
            pthread_getcpuclockid()   y        n (EINVAL)     y                y             n (EINVAL)

            [1] The caller must have CAP_WAKE_ALARM, or the error EPERM results.
