Can anybody confirm that Solaris really doesn't have time stamps? I thought
we decided that all modern OSes did. That's why we could rip out the SIGIO
I took a quick google and couldn't find any mention of anything that looked
like a time stamp in a Solaris man page for setsockopt. But some of the
stuff I was looking at was surprisingly old.
If Solaris doesn't support time stamps, I would expect ntp_packetstamp to die
on a #error. What happened with it? If it does support time stamps, how are
we supposed to read them? There are a bunch of CMSG macros over in
ntp_packetstamp. They are useless without those missing symbols so it should
have barfed there too.

I think we should try to go forward. That commit made time stamps work in
most other OSes. I think we really want that.
The rest of the code is somewhat prepared for this. If an OS doesn't support
time stamps, we can go back to using the time-after-select without a lot of
work. I think we want to document which OSes are broken.
These are my opinions. I hate spam.
