I'm not sure that I'd call this simpler. Personally, I prefer using
nanosleep(), since it is just a system call instead of a library that
creates a thread every second to wake up the checker thread. But I don't
actually think that there's anything wrong with this, and I'm sure it
will come closer to waking the checker loop on the second, so if you're
strongly in favor of it, that's fine. Otherwise, I'll just rebase my
nanosleep patch.
