Ok, pardon my ignorance, but I thought the slew rate was something
that was only marginly related to the pll frequency.

In the case of my laptop and the poor APM/interrupt interaction, doing
a step (if the difference is large) or a high slew rate would be the
correct solution.  In the case of my main server that sometimes gets
lagged by a full pipe, the correct solution is to ignore the NTP
packets and free run for a while.  In neither case is the frequency of
the cpu clock significantly different so I it was my understanding
that the pll frequency would also stay the same.
