 I could argue that the clock_id for the reapped pid is/was known.
 
 Anyway, due to our implementation of the clock ids, the id is not a handle,
 but rather a pid-like value.  The reused pid would suddenly revive the
 clock.

 stable/9 is frozen for 9.2.  I do not think that re would approve merging
 of the non-critical new feature now.
