To repeat what I reminded you of last time.  Linux *doesn't* have the API.
The macros in timepps provide the RFC compliant API.  The NTP developers
should stop depending on the pps-tools maintainer to provide the macros and
rewrite the module to use the native ioctl interface or ask the downstream
maintainers to take on that task.

I still think the final responsibility lies with S1 operator so  adding a
note to the build doc with a link to the Git repo would also be reasonable.
