According to the loader.conf man page these should all be in the format:

kern.ipc.semmni="32"
kern.ipc.semmns="512"
hint.apic.0.disabled="1"

I don't know if this matters.

I'm not sure hint.apic.0.disabled is valid for 7.2.  sysctl -a doesn't
list this variable on my machine.  Maybe it's only available on some
machines.

Can you use ntpd?
