Subject[PATCH 2/2 v3] adjtimex.2: add explanation on ADJ_TAI mode
This patch includes the adjtimex mode ADJ_TAI, intended to update the
TAI offset. There are other FIXMEs in the man page and it's a bit
outdated. I'll be on it once those first patches are accepted (to be
sure to do the right thing).
