[erlang-bugs] clock_gettime stability check locked out for linux

The check for clock_gettime ignores the configure test result for 
stability. Discussed in the following thread:


I am interested in whether this is a legitimate issue on linux systems 
or an artifact to lock this setting out on older kernels. According to 
the libc docs on newer kernels the appropriate clock ids are supported. 
If the latter is it possible the check could be adjusted to lock out old 
kernels and actually honor the stability test result on newer?

Any information you have on this is helpful.
