Sorry for the message here, but the references Google led me to left me 
uncertain...

What's the status (if any) of PPS kernel discipline for NTP and Linux 
2.6.x?  I see a PPSkit-lite at kernel.org, but the last upate was in 
April, and the comments warn of seriously alpha status.

One of my two NTP servers* currently runns version 2.4.21 with PPSkit 
applied, but now I need to upgrade it to 2.6 to support another 
application.  What's the best course, given that I have a good PPS 
signal (from an HP Z3801A GPSDO) available?

Thanks,

John

* The other server runs FreeBSD.
