Things like adjtime ought to use some mach syscalls. /dev/kmem doesn't
make sense, as that's a (very low level) interface to the unix kernel,
and the Hurd doesn't have one.

Typically programs for older unices access /dev/kmem to tune some
kernel variables, in the same way as you write to files in /proc under
linux.
