Nope. The parse clocks are type 8.

That should not be required to have support for the ATOM driver be 
compiled in.

On the other hand, I've just been in contact with someone else claiming 
that support for driver 28 was not been compiled in unless 
--enable-parse-clocks was passed to ./configure.

I couldn't duplicate this, yet, but we should have a closer look at this 
before RC becomes the next release.
