https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=259036 Bug ID: 259036 Summary: feature request: add PPS_SYNC to GENERIC Product: Base System Version: Unspecified Hardware: Any OS: Any Status: New Severity: Affects Some People Priority: --- Component: kern Assignee: bugs@FreeBSD.org Reporter: email@example.com For those of us using a GPS or other form of PPS signal with ntpd, the only reason to recompile the kernel is to add the PPS_SYNC option. Other FreeBSD derived projects like pfsense already have it in by default. There are only two files affected by this option, kern_ntptime.c and kern_tc.c. (kern_clock.c also includes opt_ntp.h, but does not use PPS_SYNC.) It adds very little code. Last time somebody counted, it was about 218 lines. In kern_tc.c it only adds code to implement the PPS_IOC_KCBIND ioctl and adds code to pps_event(). Both of these code paths will only be used by people using PPS. If one has to select only one architecture, it would be amd64, but the different arm kernels would also be very useful. -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
