I just ran a test, and the real-time clock is keeping correct time relative 
to another PC.  (with ntpd turned off on the machine under test, left 
running on the reference machine).

As a test, I compared clock output to the XMMS timer display, in 1 minute 
of wall time it had played 1 minute 10 seconds of an .mp3 file.

No, it's the i686 binary kernel from fedora updates.
