I was playing with NTP on my sgimips box last night and noticed
that my x86 (running a 1.5ZA kernel from the last time the x86
SMP branch caught up to -current) was keeping remarkably poor
time; in fact, NTP made the clock so bad that this morning the
clock, which normally tracks time fairly reliably, was 45 minutes
off (after ~ 9 hours or so).
I figured I'd send a heads-up if this wasn't a known problem; in
case it *isn't* I can do some poking around, but unfortunately
have too many other things on my plate to do any thorough digging.
(If a PR is warranted against things on a branch, I'll do so as
