Hm.  This seems like a problem for me.  What I essentially have is a simulated GPS environment running on the laptop, where I need to be able to restart a scenario, which in turn would restart time, of course.  Time can therefore jump hours or even days, either backward or forward.  Other applications on the laptop and the connected Linux devices need to know time from the simulation and stay synchronized.
