We should print the saved with timex_show() here and the rval at least.

It however it looks like kernel boots with STA_UNSYNC until NTP manges
to sync the time and clears the flag but only if it manages to sync the



Which itself is an argument to run the test with unsynced clock, since
not all environments have access to internet or ntp daemon running.
