System: NetBSD 2.0B NetBSD 2.0B (GENERIC.MP) #0: Mon Apr 5 17:00:09 CEST 2004 i386
Architecture: i386
Machine: i386
	I am running MP kernel on i386 and ntp daemon.
	It cannot sync with NTP server;|
	When I run same machine but with GENERIC UNI kernel it works fine.
	---- ntp.conf ----
	pidfile         /var/run/
	driftfile       /var/db/ntp.drift
	logconfig       -syncstatus
	tos             minsane 2
	---- ntp.conf ----

	If solution will be found, please commit it to 2.0!
	Run ntpd on UNI kernel check if it get sync
	Run ntpd on MP kernel and check
	(on same SMP machine)
	No clue. Probably some problem with interrupts on MP.
