Regarding Eric's long discussion of clock accuracy and missed interrupts,
I have to point out that the problem the PR refers to has absolutely nothing
to do with clock accuracy of any kind. adjtime(2) just adds or subtracts
a certain value over a certain number of ticks, and it's behavior for a given
call would be the same if the clock was off by .00001% or 50%.
Anyway, we found some MD problems in that system call...
