I think we'd need at least an order of

paths, and that's just not available at all, let alone portably.

For spinlocks we could conceivably just bite the bullet and use a raw rdtsc
or the equivalent for other platforms. It might be pretty easy to
distinguish sane numbers from numbers that result after a process
reschedule and we could just discard data when that happens (or count

That may possibly work for spinlocks but it won't work for anything heavier
where process reschedules are routine.
