    SubjectRe: [RFC+PATCH] RTC calibration
    Mark Gross <> writes:

    Because NTP is a completely different beast. NTP is used to keep a
    software clock synchronized with a remote source. This software clock
    is usually implemented as a software PLL on top of a high-resolution
    hardware clock, with the remote clock serving as frequency reference.

    What I need to do, however, is calibrate a low-resolution hardware
    clock using a trusted reference (which could very well be a software
    clock maintained by NTP).
