Welcome to the current decade! Glad to hear Asterisk 11 is working out okay
for you so far. 1.2 to 11 is a big leap.

FWIW, the Asterisk wiki has a run down on timing interfaces and which ones
are preferred:


For those who want the cliff's notes version, it is:
* res_timing_timerfd
* res_timing_kqueue (where available)
* res_timing_dahdi
* res_timing_pthread

In particular, res_timing_pthread should only be used as a last resort.
