I applied the patch to 2.4.22 with only a few minor hand-edits required,
and it seems to be working OK on i386.  I didn't even try for the other
architectures.

It looks to me like the "mainline" kernel authors have reserved KERN_TIME=55
in sysctl.h (even though the definition isn't there) but have used
0x5460 for FIOQSIZE in 2.4.22, a minor and easily corrected collision
with the PPS patch.

Tim.
