I've resolved that problem by compressing the hardwired temperature
thresholds in the kernel sources 5K upwards (the highest threshold is
unchanged to avoid any hardware damage) and building a new custom

I've wrapped it up some time ago and fixed the frequency to 408MHz so I
have some usable load range to keep the temperature stable.  I'll try a
different case and less insulation in the new year so I can get it back
to a higher frequency, which should improve latencies and permit even
better performance.  Even at the current low frequency there are no
long-latency spikes on the PPS registration like I see on both rasPi
running with PPS and that has translated to remarkably stable
performance to the point that I could see temperature effects on the GPS
(situated outside the thermal enclosure and having a TCXO), which I've
reduced by protecting the GPS module better from air drafts.
