I don't know about any really high precision clocks (I looked in vain
for a CPU cycle counter register) a while back, but Andrzej Zaborowski
has a patch in the andy branch that allows "dynamic tick" scheduling to
much higher resolution than normal
he's planning to use it to get low jitter mplayer action. I guess this
won't do any harm for realtime.
