Based on someone elses historical message I tried changing the time
counter from TSC to i8254
# sysctl kern.timecounter.hardware=i8254
and after doing some manual calculations I tweaked
# sysctl machdep.i8254_freq=1187216
# machdep.i8254_freq: 1193182 -> 1187216
Is doing this safe? I'm concerned that there are unforeseen
consequences to messing with these kernel variables. Ntpd seems to like
this setup. Anything to make ntpd happy.
And if I may, why can't ntpd do this? (Don't answer that.) I use the
FINE software to set my clock so I don't have to. It's supposed to make
my life easier.
