[ntp:hackers] SIGIO and fuzz

In http://bugs.ntp.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2433 Frank Kardel notes that we
can change from a low-impact runtime check to a no-impact compile-time
check, and in examining this situation he noted that we only "fuzz" the
time if we are *not* using signaled I/O.

I talked with Dave Mills about this, and he can't remember why this
might have been a good idea, and thinks we should probably always "fuzz"
the time.

Does anybody know a reason we should leave the current behavior alone?
