I looked at the code before the GPS week roll-over, and there were a
couple of places it was handled by comparing to the compilation date of
ntpd (which seems a reasonable automatic check, since somebody using a
20-year-old copy of ntpd is probably not worth supporting).

Ideally, this should all be standardized and handled in one place,
rather than in each refclock driver.
