I was refering to the modifications that are talked about in RFC-1589,
"A Kernel Model for Precision Timekeeping," and its followup document,
that is available in These
modifications add two system calls:

	ntp_gettime() - NTP user application interface
	ntp_adjtime() - NTP daemon application interface

Sorry for the initial terse message.
