Does anybody have any idea why, under 1.6A/i386, I'd be getting "Can't
set time of day: Device not configured" from a chrooted ntpd even though
I configured clockctl into my kernel? The /var/chroot/ntpd/dev/clocktl
device is there as well:

    ironic # ll /var/chroot/ntpd/dev/clockctl
    crw-rw----  1 root  ntpd  89, 0 Jun  8 01:12 /var/chroot/ntpd/dev/clockctl

    ironic # cat /var/chroot/ntpd/dev/clockctl
    cat: /var/chroot/ntpd/dev/clockctl: Device not configured
