For the moment you would use `notify-explicit' but you need to keep the notify
list up to date manually. With BIND8 I used to disable BIND's notify entirely
and use an external program to send the notify messages.

gettimeofday() and settimeofday() were included in SVr4 due to their
common use in BSD based applications.  They were to be included exactly
as in BSD, with two parameters.  However, AT&T/USL noted that the second
parameter was unused and deleted it, thereby making a routine included
for compatibility, incompatible. -- Solaris <sys/time.h>
