Let me understand: you mean that in 4.2.6 ntpd will slew down the clock
by two seconds on systems where you can't notify the kernel?

If so, does it also mean that it would do the same when you disable the
kernel discipline by adding a disable kernel in ntp.conf?

If you shared the results of your testing when you're done, that would
be great ;-)
