adjtimex adjusts kernel variables; the results will not be preserved
across a reboot.
Write a tiny C program to call adjtimex and run it each time the system
boots and before starting ntpd. The amount you need to put your clock
within 500 PPM should be more or less constant and ntpd should be able
to correct for any minor variations.
