[ntp:questions] Can a clock drift be too big for ntpd?

Having had my share of bad HW and poorly configured SW leading to
haywire in NTP, I'd add a couple of suggestions to what others have
already said:

- power management with dynamic CPU clock control may confuse some
kernels on some systems, when using the kernel boot option helps.

- some patches tackle buggy chipsets, when the best is to copy the
original config file, as others suggested, and just changing the
option you're interested in.
