[ldns-users] Question about ldns packet timings

Hi everyone, I'm not sure if this is the correct list for this question,
but I had a question/enhancement request for ldns.  Currently, the function
ldns_pkt_querytime() returns the amount of time a request took, measured
with gettimeofday().  I was wondering if there was a good reason why this
time is not calculated from a kernel timestamp via the SIOCGSTAMP ioctl?
We are using libldns in our production environment and when the processor
gets busy, we end up with random spikes in latency due to scheduling
overhead, etc.
