I've encountered the following error, and as per self-enclosed 
instructions, I'm posting it here.

Whether using timepps.h from Ulrich Windl's PPSkit or the 
netlink-enabled timepps.h from Rodolfo Giometti's LinuxPPS, I get the 
same error.  I'd rather get a fix for the latter, as the former is 
causing me kernel panics at the moment.

Incidently, lists.ntp.isc.org is missing several months from the 
questions mailing list.  Will these be reappearing anytime?
