What about logging a warning and iterating through ioloop->timeouts
and subtracting (ioloop_time - ioloop_timeval.tv_sec) from each
next_run.tv_sec?  That way, the absolute worst case would be a
doubled timeout (e.g. a poll starts with 2 timeouts, one with 9
seconds remaining, and one with 10 seconds remaining, the time time
goes backwards, the poll times out, and each timer has 9 seconds
added to it.)

Given how infrequently the clock is likely to go
backwards, the impact would probably be unnoticable, and a doubled
timeout seems a lot more graceful than dying...  however, there
might be other things that could break that I don't know about...

Just an idea,
