That was the intention. Simply adding definitions for

int clock_getres(clockid_t clk_id, struct timespec *res);
int clock_gettime(clockid_t clk_id, struct timespec *tp);
int clock_settime(clockid_t clk_id, const struct timespec *tp);

to the linux unit, as per the linux man page for these calls. No more, no less.
