System: NetBSD 1.5Z NetBSD 1.5Z (BSTAR_WS) #0: Wed Dec 12 00:03:05 GMT 2001 acorn32
Architecture: arm32
Machine: acorn32
When using a tool like ntpd it is very irritating that the kernel prints
the time everytime ntpd rewrites the hardware clock. This is really a
companion to port-acorn32/15313. The i386 port doesn't bother with this
time printing (and never has). I suspect it was only added because the
CMOS clock writing didn't work properly.
	Run ntpd to keep time synchronised with an NTP server or 
	do set the time and date repeatedly.
