"In various discussions one can often hear the argument "I can't
reboot my machine, it will give me bad uptime.". For some reason some
communities are using the uptime of a machine as a compensation for
something else being small. This creates bad system administration
This diff remedies the problem by allowing people to enlarge their
Epenis by arbitrarily adjusting their uptime through sysctl. Not
tested other than that it builds. "

Too funny. I send this patch out to anybody who just _has_ to mention
their awsome uptime. What a joke.
