Use monotonic clock to prevent timing issues
This patch replaces the gettimeofday()/timeval-system with uses of clock_gettime() with a monolithic clock and timespec-structs. gettimeofday() is not accurate and prone to jumps and POSIX.1-2008 marks it as obsolete. Read more here [0]. The patch should speak for itself and decreases the binary size for me by almost 200K(!).
