Yes and no.

Zen-Machine# [/] date;clock

Time is now right

Zen-Machine# [/] time sleep 15
real 0m10.012s
user 0m0.000s
sys 0m0.010s

Timing is still 1.5X fast. : P
BTW adjtimeconfig came up with: TICK=6671 FREQ=1271119

I need to actually go all the way back to where the bogomips and base timing are
calculated. In init/main.c I tried jiffies /= 1.5; before all the bogo calculations but it didn't
do anything (It should have from what I can see....)
