Hmm, there is another "feature", I believe in adjtime() or somesuch,
which will not correct the clock if going backwards.  This can cause
the initial ntpdate command to fail.  Kludge fix is to set date
manually to Jan 1, 1970 and then run ntpdate.  After that ntpd should
be able to hold it steady.

Yep, that's rev5.2 (which has all the clock fixes).  The ff means
plastic case and regular (tulip+serial) daughtercard.
