Are we interested in supporting low resolution system clocks?

It's scattered all over the place so I'm impressed if you really removed it 

The code that I was looking at in ntp_packetstamp had a run time test.
        if (sys_tick > measured_tick && sys_tick > S_PER_NS) {
and sys_tick == measured_tick on one sample system so the next few lines were 
never executed.

If Eric and Mark agree that we don't need to support big tick OSes, I'll look 
harder at trying to figure out what it does to see if there is anything 
useful we need to save.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
