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 louie.udel.edu:/pub/ntp/kernel.tar.Z. These
modifications add two system calls:
ntp_gettime() - NTP user application interface
ntp_adjtime() - NTP daemon application interface
Sorry for the initial terse message.
