 Here is what I should have sent to begin with:
 * tickadj - read, and possibly modify, the kernel `tick' and
 *           `tickadj' variables, as well as `dosynctodr'.  Note that
 *           this operates on the running kernel only.  I'd like to be
 *           able to read and write the binary as well, but haven't
 *           mastered this yet.

 Here is the usage:
                fprintf(stderr, "Usage: %s [tick_value]\n", argv[0]);

 When it can't use adjtimex it tries to open /dev/kmem and alter it using
an nlist.  There seems to be another way, but it looks to be even more hackish
than using the nlist.
