I've never encountered that problem. I have two VMWare servers running
7.2, and this is the only way to get semi-accurate time keeping. You
still have to run ntpd to keep the clock from drifting.

Maybe remove the other settings from loader.conf and try again with
just this one line? If the kernel still doesn't load, what messages do
you see on the screen?
