With all due respect old chum, where have you been? I have been shrill
to the point of extreme nastyness on getting rid of per-driver PPS. I'm
sure I offended everybody with this agenda, especially on getting rid of
the per-OS PPS interface in favor of the PPSAPI.
The downside of the per-driver PPS is the absence of reliable mitigation
should something break in the radio or interface. The usual per-driver
behavior is to take the seconds from the timecode and fraction from the
PPS, possibly ignoring the timecode fraction, which could be and
sometimes in my experience is bogus.
