Linux kernel updates CMOS (hardware clock) time every 11 minutes. In-kernel clock, that uses various CPU/Chipset hardware and is stable enough. Its precision is as good as CPU frequency high (mostly). Any big drift may be caused by bugs in the kernel, low precision of CMOS while computer is powered off.
Does the foregoing mean that Etch does not need ntp or ntpdate to maintain reasonable clock stability?
