Hey guys,
	I'll try to investigate this a little from the Symmetricom side
as well.  The reference clock driver is basically a no-brainer.  And, I
believe that everyone who buys a Symm PCI card gets some sort of Linux
driver.  The only issue is the interface to the driver.  I tend to write
my own drivers because then they do what I want them to do so I'm not up
on what we as a company distribute.

Rob, Steve,

I have no problem adding the bc635 driver to the current distribution. 
The KSI/Odetics driver should probably be retired anyway. While I try to

push back on more drivers, what I am trying to encourage is that drivers

similar in function should where possible be merged and what different 
features are required be discovered at run time. This has worked well 
for all Austron, Spectracom and TrueTime products so far. I remain a 
little suspicious about the burgeoning crop of GPS drivers.
