Hmm. This isn’t really something I know much about.

The github link I sent seems to be either GPLv2 or LGPLv3… don’t really know what LGPLv2.1 means. Based on the actually code that I’m seeing, there is really not much going on here and thus it might be difficult to do anything differently. It might be easier to have urcu use some configuration time behavior to have its own arch-specific timing functionality if necessary.
