[arch-general] Leap seconds ntp and chrony?

There has been a fair amount of disruption to systems over a
widespread geographic area due to the mutex leap second bug from
midnight Saturday, and from what I read this was triggered by ntpd
calling specific routines from the kernel - does anyone know if the
same bug has also hit systems using chrony if that was in use instead
of ntp?

I guess that the kernel patches being written by John Stulz at
https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/7/1/203 will filter through to a kernel
update at some point?
