Subject[RFC][PATCH 1/2] Reduced NTP rework (part 1)
From
Date
Roman, All,

With Roman's suggestions, I've been working on reducing the footprint
of my timeofday patches. This is the first of two patches that I wanted
to float by the list for feedback before I merge it into my patchset.

This patch reworks some of the interrupt time NTP adjustments so that it
could be re-used with the timeofday patches. The motivation of the
change is to logically separate the code which adjusts xtime and the
code that decides (based on the NTP state variables) how much per tick
to adjust xtime.

Thus this patch should not affect the existing behavior, but just
separate the logical functionality so it can be re-used.

This is mainly for review, so I don't think anyone will really use it,
but it applies ontop of my ntp-shift-right_A3 cleanup patch I sent out
earlier.

thanks
