Bug 574897 - Switch JobManager to nanoTime() and monotonic time Usage of System.currentTimeMillis() in Jobs framework is problematic, because System.currentTimeMillis() API depends on external time sources and may go backwards and forwards at any time, contrary to our "human" understanding of the "monotonic" time that can never go back. However, code responsible for scheduling and joining on jobs depends on time values delivered by that API and I assume may be confused if time goes backwards. Since Java 5, System.nanoTime() was added to allow better precision and less system dependent time measurements. While still not strictly monotonic, it is less problematic as System.currentTimeMillis(), because it is not depending on system time changes that could be made by user or by synchronization of local time with NTP server. This change switches JobManager and related code to use System.nanoTime() and introduces JobManager.now() as a source for monotonic non-negative time values independent on local time and consistent between multiple threads.
