Could you give the first part of the output? I would like to see what 
the the samples are jumping from and to, and how often they jump.

Something like the following is what I'd hope to see from the first 
lines of the output of 'gllib/test-gettime-res x'. What are you seeing?

gettime_res returned 15625000 ns
time = 1650496481.515625000
time = 1650496481.531250000
time = 1650496481.546875000
time = 1650496481.562500000
time = 1650496481.578125000
time = 1650496481.593750000
time = 1650496481.609375000
time = 1650496481.625000000
time = 1650496481.640625000
time = 1650496481.656250000

The resolution of Elisp's (time-convert nil t) is determined by the 
smallest nonzero gap between timestamps that are returned by C's 
current_timespec. This is the system time resolution as far as Elisp is 
concerned, because Elisp cannot return the current time at a finer 
resolution than what current_timespec gives it. This resolution is not 
necessarily the same as the time resolution of the motherboard clock, OS 
high-res timestamp, file timestamps, etc.

Use the largest resolution R ns consistent with the samples, such that 
1000000000 is an integer multiple of R so that timestamp computations 
are exact.
