The patch is rather small. :-)

You had to drop the support for "Idle = Y" - any chance you would
implement it with native Win32 calls?

Also, you're assuming that CLK_TCK and CLOCKS_PER_SEC are the same -
which does not have to be the case (although it may be the case for
current MinGW if you say that the benchmark works right).
