I tried to get multi-signal handling into the PPS-API and my failure
in that was a large part of the reason why I asked to not be listed
as an author of the RFC.
On the other hand, if you have very special needs, which I think
timestamping four signals with one serial port is, I would advocate
rolling your own.
You may want to look at the dev/ppbus/pps.c driver for inspiration.
