[time-nuts] ARM boards for low-cost GPSDOs

I've used the STM32F4 for a few projects, and was considering it for a
time tagger for a DMTD system. I have a question about the clocking
though that someone may be able to help me with.
The 32F4 (like lots of similar ARMs) uses a PLL to generate the internal
clocks from much lower frequency clock or crystal. Has anyone quantified
the stability of the synthesised clock?
