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.
