The only thing that linuxpps would be the correct target for is getting
the PPS echo facility to do something useful with GPIO (and maybe
serial, but that's a whole 'nother driver to consider).

In any case, having a timstamped _output_ facility is much more useful
than bolting doodads onto the PPS echo (that was originally meant as a
debug facility) and should be more easily acceptable for upstream when
made sufficiently general.

That does not surprise me, given it's all a pretty ugly hack that really
only works for the one single thing he's needed it for.  I'm not blaming
him, just a reminder that getting things upstream takes a lot more apple

I haven't, mainly because I've tied up both machines where I can
reasonably quickly recompile the kernel and don't want to take them off
their current duty without a replacement.
