The patch seems to work.  Setting the date to an incorrect time, and
rebooting back to the same incorrect offset worked.  Setting back to
"normal" with ntpdate and rebooting again also worked.  What other sort
of tests should be done?

Please discuss this on tech-kern when the time comes.  I'm not sure if
we should be using timespecs or bintime as the "base" system time.  A
long time ago there was talk about switching to timespecs, but that
predated FreeBSD's bintime and timecounters.
