The idea is that you will run ntp, so the kernel will write the more
accurate software clock back out to hardware when it shuts down.
If your clock is running too fast, I would guess that your interval clock is
bad. I think on i386 this is completely separate from the time-of-day
clock, and uses a different crystal.
If you don't like this behavior, you can comment out the call to resettodr()
in arch/i386/i386/machdep.c. Or figure out how to set the TIMEBAD boot
