[20060608] timecounters merged
Frank Kardel and Simon Burge have worked on porting the FreeBSD implementation of Poul-Henning Kamp's timecounters to NetBSD-curren. Benefits of the framework are true nanosecond support (within the limits of the hardware), easier interfacing to hardware counters (as all scaling is done on a machine independent level), a new NTP "nanokernel" API, a simplified internal interface for the PPS API and multiprocessing support.

See Frank's mail for a lot more information including the original timecounters paper, the current status page and details on the NTP nanokernel API.
