Make `timer_create(CLOCK_REALTIME)` autoconf test more reliable

I've noticed that on a platform with a coarse timer/scheduling
granularity of 10ms this autoconf tests fails to detect a working

On AIX, this effectively means that intervals/timers are rounded up to
multiples of 10ms, so a 13ms delay is effectively a 20ms delay.

By using a 100ms timeout we are on the safe side.
