[ALSA] Use posix clock monotonic for PCM and timer timestamps
Jaroslav Kysela [Thu, 13 Dec 2007 09:19:42 +0000 (10:19 +0100)]
We need an accurate and continuous (monotonic) time sources to do
accurate synchronization among more timing sources. This patch allows
to enable monotonic timestamps for ALSA PCM devices and enables monotonic
timestamps for ALSA timer devices.
