    Description

      NTP returns a special code from ntp_gettime when there is going to be/just was a leap second.
      Dealing with this is hard since clocks may be set back.

      Google's solution to this problem was to change the NTP protocol (http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2011/09/time-technology-and-leaping-seconds.html), but probably we don't have the same freedom.
