        Bug 233: New LP64 Patches
        patch imported from original author
        Bug 246: 3 issues with the ONCORE driver
        (1) You can reset the ONCORE driver back to defaults by *reading*
            the variables from across the net.
        This bug was introduced when I (foolishly) 'fixed' the code so it
        would understand the FLAG variables that corresponded to its own
        input variables from the ntp.ONCORE.x file.  Since I do NOT understand
        all the implications of ntp_control, I will remove this 'fix'.
        The variables can now only be set in ntp.ONCORE.  They can NOT be
        changed dynamically.  The documentation will be changed back.  Perhaps
        at some time in the future I will dig through the ntp code to
        understand ntp_control.
        (2) Fudge acted upon AFTER ntp.ONCORE.
        Fixed by (1) the FUDGE flag/time variables are ignored, use the
        ntp.ONCORE file.
        (3) In the driver, ONCORE_start and a few other procedures do not
            produce any output in the clockstats file.
        The originator of the bug is running FreeBSD 5.1.
        I have looked at the output from MY copy of FreeBSD 5.1, and several
        Linux versions (7.3 -> 9), and Fedora and do NOT see any missing
        messages.  The messages start with an "ONCORE DRIVER -- CONFIGURING"
        message written when the driver is first entered, and contain all the
        messages I would expect after that.
        I have no idea why he is not seeing the messages.
        No action.
        Bug 260, Patches for item (1) in the above.
        The patch purports to fix the problem in Bug 246.
        As noted I don't understand the details of what is going on behind the
        curtain, so I would rather remove the offending code, than try to fix it.
        There is also an increase buffer size so that longer messages can be
        sent to the clockstats file.  Ill leave that for the user to do on his
        own if he wants to change the messages, but with slightly more effort
        he could do the same using SHMEM.
        He found an error in determining the ONCORE M12/M12+T. (thanks)
        Rather than his #ifdef, I have corrected the code.

        Fixes from Reg Clemens:
        I have changed the documentation page for the ONCORE so it no longer
        references Flag2/Flag3.
