60 Hz is pretty slow.  The PPS logic will work at that speed.

Can you feed the A/D trigger signal into something that the kernel PPS 
supports?  You don't actually need the A/D trigger signal, just something 
that is derived from your TCXO.

You are building a PLL.  They have potential stability problems.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
