Hello,

On compiling on a Xeon machine i get the following warning

kernel/time/ntp.c: In function `do_adjtimex':
kernel/time/ntp.c:328: warning: comparison of distinct pointer types
lacks a cast
kernel/time/ntp.c:329: warning: comparison of distinct pointer types
lacks a cast

This is with gcc version 3.4.3. The following patch fixes this...
