This sort of problem has been discussed before, and your patch is *not* okay.

The problem is that there are many places that use TIMESPEC_TO_TIMEVAL(), and 
for some of them it is simply wrong (and might even cause minor malfunctions) 
to round up.  There needs to be both "round up" and "round down" behavior, 
used appropriately.
