Do we have any systems where ntp_adjtime_ns doesn't work?

There is a pile of ugly code in ntpd/ntp_loopfilter.c at start_kern_loop 
that's setting up a SIGSYS (illegal instruction == invalid syscall) handler.  
It's testing to see if ntp_adjtime_ns works.

Is that code necessary?  Can't we push that sort of test back to build time?

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
