Hi  Michael Kerrisk,

With reference to the LTP (Linux Test Project) test cases
ltp/testcases/kernel/syscalls/adjtimex/adjtimex02.c

GIT commit:
http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=commitdiff;h=eea83d896e318bda54be2d2770d2c5d6668d11db

There are changes noticed in latest kernel from 2.6.26 and above.
adjtimex EINVAL error check for offset is removed from 2.6.26 and above kernels

Kernels source lines are

To make sure the offset value following lines are added in
linux/kernel/time/ntp.c

+ /*
+ * Scale the phase adjustment and
+ * clamp to the operating range.
+ */
+ offset = min(offset, MAXPHASE);
+ offset = max(offset, -MAXPHASE);
+

Please review the patch.
