Maybe you should just incorporate his changes and hope for the best :-/

Is it appropriate anyway for a refclock driver to terminate ntpd if it
isn't happy?  From a quick look, only refclock_true and refclock_jupiter
call abort(), and only refclock_oncore and refclock_mx4200 call exit().
All the others presumably mark the refclock "bad" in some way and allow
things to carry on, ignoring it.
