[ntp:questions] NMEA driver using common PPSAPI code

Hello Dave,

After spending some time I could see that there is an issue with using
common PPSAPI code.
I disabled ZDG messages (containing GPS time) and the driver is supposed to
use the UTC time
in ZDA messages. Here is the output of NTP log:

I am running short of time at office, but will manage to spend time to help
debug this issue.
Let me know your suggestions.

Thanks & Kind Regards,
_Venu
