The source is in cpukit/rtems/src/clockget.c :)
You will get a "never set" error when obtaining the time in native or
POSIX format as well as asking for seconds since epoch.
TIcks since boot will always return 0.
Ticks per second will return whatever you configured.
You can't timeout on anything or delay.
