Was ntpd, systemd-timesyncd, or some other NTP/PTP daemon running
shortly before or during the test?

The warning indicates that the clock was slewed by adjtime() or
adjtimex(), which makes the measurement of the frequency less accurate
and the test may fail.

Maybe this test and other tests that measure the frequency of the
system clock should be modified to SKIP when adjtimex() returns a
non-zero offset (or the frequency changes during the test)?
