       iv_now, iv_validate_now, iv_invalidate_now - ivykis time handling


       #include <iv.h>

       extern struct timespec iv_now;
       void iv_validate_now(void);
       void iv_invalidate_now(void);


       iv_now  is  a global variable that reflects the current time-of-day.  Applications written
       to the ivykis API generally require to know the current time-of-day in  many  places,  and
       therefore effort is done to cache this quantity.

       The  contents of iv_now might be stale.  Calling the function iv_validate_now ensures that
       the current contents of iv_now are up-to-date.

       The function iv_invalidate_now is called to invalidate the currently  cached  time-of-day.
       This function should be called after any operation that takes a significant amount of wall
       clock time.
