Subject[RFC][PATCH 1/11] Reduced NTP rework (part 1)
From
Date
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 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 patch applies on top of my ntp-shift-right patch I posted awhile
back.

thanks
-john
