    Can you confirm that this one-liner really prints only "0" there?
    perl -le 'system (@ARGV); my ($u, $s, $cu, $cs) = times; print $cu'
    timeout 1 perl -e '$t=1; while (1) { $t = sqrt $t }'

Yep.  It prints "0".

Depending on how perl's `times' is implemented, this could be a
limitation/bug in the sparc64 port.
