disable sys_timerfd()
commit e42601973b1bce1d2987f82159c1ebeaccc6b310 in mainline. There is still some confusion and disagreement over what this interface should actually do. So it is best that we disable it in 2.6.23 until we get that fully sorted out. (sys_timerfd() was present in 2.6.22 but it was apparently broken, so here we assume that nobody is using it yet).
