 *''time after runin'' was a sample of the kernel time taken after 115
 hours of runin, at 2012-01-30 00:01:57+00:00,
 *the RTC of each unit was set using ''ntp-set-clock'' prior to the runin
 *''ntp step time server offset'' was the value shown by ''ntpdate
 *kernel used was be5c532a - arm-3.0-wip.

 Current design: at boot, the RTC is used to set the kernel time.  The
 kernel maintains this while running.  On controlled shutdown or reboot,
 the kernel time is written to the RTC.

 Therefore, observations of drift of the RTC will include drift of the
 kernel time, if the kernel is run and a controlled shutdown or reboot
