In 2005 it became part of the Linux kernel; in 2007 it became part of pps-tools;
in 2010 pps-tools adapted time_pps_kcbind from PHK BSD original as at 2005.

In my experience, it will never happen, happens between 6 hours and 6 months after release!
It's handy if you can just rebuild at that time with -DNEVER_HAPPEN to fix the problem. ;^>

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis
