Yes, that's a correct optimisation. This is simply a namespace clash.


How about we do:

#if HZ=1000
#define MSEC_TO_JIFFIES(msec) (msec)
#define JIFFIES_TO_MESC(jiffies) (jiffies)
#elif HZ=100
#define MSEC_TO_JIFFIES(msec) (msec * 10)
#define JIFFIES_TO_MESC(jiffies) (jiffies / 10)
#define MSEC_TO_JIFFIES(msec) ((HZ * (msec) + 999) / 1000)
#define JIFFIES_TO_MSEC(jiffies) ...

in some kernel-wide header then kill off all the private implementations?

include/linux/time.h. One of the SCTP people already did this, but I suppose it's straightforward to reproduce.
