I think this is the reason that timers in shared_user_data are not being
updated. I also think that updating timers in every client process in
every 15.6 ms is a lot of overhead.
Another approach could be no to allocate that address and provide up to
date data in an signal/exception handler. This is a more complex
approach and not sure whether possible in user mode. And of course would
defeat the purpose using shared memory for high performance.
