Bonjour Howie Frederickson,

	We have the exact same problem here, seems when ntpd is
	in sync it try to update the hardware clock and that
	operation make the interrupt controler freeze for 
	mega-milli-secondsssssss, then ntpd become out of sync.

	We fixed the problem by using 'chronyd', using NTP protocol
	but not updating hardware clock (hard syncing only at shutdown),
	work like a charm...

	Hope this help....
