Weird to be reviewing my own patch...

Anyway, Mike tells me that coordinated clock rates are going to
be on the list this month. We should use those patches instead of
this safe parent/rate stuff. If the patches don't appear soon, we
can look into having the clock provider handle the parent/rate
switch itself. That isn't any worse that what we've been doing in
other providers.
