What exactly does it do? Crash on segfault, a fatal error, an
assertion error, or something else? As Bill says, there might be
something in the syslog.

How do your chrony.conf and chronyd command line look like?

The most significant change between 2.1.1 and 2.2 is that chronyd
creates a Unix domain socket in /var/run/chrony. I see in your kernel
config it's a module, maybe it's not loaded? But even if it wasn't I
think it would just send an error message to syslog and continue
without the command socket.

In Fedora the SELinux rules had to be updated to allow chronyd to
create the socket, but that didn't prevent it from running (with
reduced functionality).
