 I have two machines, one that was drifting so badly I could notice it
 without logs to compare, and another that claims a zero drift from NTP.
 A difference is that the drifting first machine's dmesg says:
 timecounter: Timecounter "clockinterrupt" frequency 100 Hz quality 0
 ERROR: 4316413966 cycle TSC drift observed
 As for this inducing panics, someone mentioned we have some non-ideal
 behaviour if a clock interrupt is missed (something like: we try to
 catch up on missed clock interrupts? I wonder if this blows up with very
 many missed clock interrupts)
