    [PATCH] improve precision of process accounting. · aa5e97ce

    The unit of the cputime accouting values that are stored per process is
    currently a microsecond. The CPU timer has a maximum granularity of
    2**-12 microseconds. There is no benefit in storing the per process values
    in the lesser precision and there is the disadvantage that the backend
    has to do the rounding to microseconds. The better solution is to use
    the maximum granularity of the CPU timer as cputime unit.
