Not really, my (most likely) naive assumption was that user cpu times
might reduce noise (caused e.g. by OS thread scheduling on system with
multiple cores and hyperthreading).

Same here. So when I can easily get cpu time, I use it, and otherwise (on Mac) i just use gettimeofday and (given enough repetitions of measurements) this works well enough.
