      Description

      In current puppetlabs-ntp module I see next issues:

      1. panic option is boolean. Actually, panic is just a number that can be set, i.e., for 0, 4, 17, 74, 734, 1000 (default value), 2343 ar any other. It should be fixed.

      2. stepout option is another good thing to be set in some environments (usually I need to set it when I work with virtual machines that frequently suspended/resumed - setting stepout to small values allow me to not restart ntpd daemon after resume of a VM). It can be added easily.

      3. minpoll and maxpoll is also good options, especially if you using your own upstream NTPD server to sync with. Minpoll with small values allows you to sync much faster then with standard value 6 (which means that you need 8 sended and recieved packages every 64 seconds). It can be added easily.
