SubjectRe: ntp.c : possible inconsistency?

Let's try it:
time_constant is created for internal use of ntp.c and added by 4
-               time_constant = min(txc->constant + 4, (long)MAXTC);
+               time_constant = min(txc->constant + 4, (long)MAXTC + 4);

But sometimes it is written back to data referenced from outside. So let's do
the + 4 backwards ...
-       txc->constant      = time_constant;
+       txc->constant      = time_constant - 4;

otherwise I'd like to speak of an inconsistency. It doesn't depend of actual
use and other topics.
