 That was me on Discord. :)

Yep. psxtimer02 is a good test to start from since it is doing similar
cases on a different clock.

The coverage I was suggesting to look at is here:


Drill down to leon3 and posix and look at the timer methods (create,
settime, gettime) for current coverage.

But I warn you, it may or may not actually support the CLOCK_REALTIME and
CLOCK_MONOTONIC as required here:


So coverage may be high because the implementation of the posix methods
themselves are missing something.

Pull the thread a bit to see if the methods support the clock value in
question. If so, we just need tests. If not, some code gets added to the
timer manager and tests get added.
