I see the problematic locking is performed during the safepoint. The code was added in https://github.com/openjdk/crac/pull/85. AFAICS it's enough to wake up all threads to make them recompute the current time. As more simple approach, would it be enough to move wakeup_threads_in_timedwait out from VM Operation?
