nvt is a struct timex, part of a kernel API.  You can't change it, at least 
not without screwing things up if anybody looks at it.

On 32 bit NetBSD and FreeBSD, it's a long, so even if you could change it to 
nanoseconds, that would be getting close to overflowing.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
