Hi all,

We have been trying out Thread Sanitizer lately (on ubuntu 12.10, with clang trunk) and just ran into a problem where it outputs:

FATAL: ThreadSanitizer: failed to intercept clock_gettime

We do indeed use the clock_gettime() API (via a 3rd party library, but whatever).

What does this error message mean?  Is this a tsan bug?  Or something that's our fault?
