leap second outage

This is similar to the jiffycounter wrapping, since this doesn't happen
that often, it's not commonly tested for. Good way is to start the jiffy
counter so it wraps after 10 minutes of uptime. That way you'll run into
any bugs quickly. Either we should abolish the leap second or we should
make leap second adjustments (back and forth) on a monthly basis to
exercise the code.

You could do this, move back on even-numbered months and forward on odd.

Any real adjustment could be done via inhibiting the monthly change...

This is a hard sell though...

'fraid so.
