Running the test on a 4.4 kernel within KVM, the precision used on
ITIMER_VIRTUAL and ITIMER_PROF seems to different than the one used
for ITIMER_REAL (it seems the same used for CLOCK_REALTIME_COARSE and
CLOCK_MONOTONIC_COARSE).  I did not see it on other kernels, for
instance 5.11 and 4.15.

To avoid trying to guess the resolution used, do not check the
nanosecond internal values for the specific timers.

Checked on i686-linux-gnu with a 4.4 kernel.
