RTC can't keep up the time
I noticed a weird bug on -current (5.99.5). The hardware is new, about
3 month old. I didn't noticed such behavour on the previous 5.99.1:
$ sudo ntpdate 0.pool.ntp.org; sleep 20; sudo ntpdate 0.pool.ntp.org
17 Dec 14:02:10 ntpdate: step time server 126.96.36.199 offset
17 Dec 14:02:33 ntpdate: step time server 188.8.131.52 offset
$ date; sleep 20; date
Wed Dec 17 14:02:33 EST 2008
Wed Dec 17 14:02:49 EST 2008
it seems that each 20 seconds, I lose 3.75 seconds.
I tested with an external timer, and the delay between the two date(1)
*is* 20 seconds.
Any hints ?
