In the PPS via GPIO this is an issue and you don't have to go back 10
years. There's been a major change between (I think) 3.8 and later
kernels which makes some things much easier but breaks other things.
To be clear my comments aren't about
complex and subtle $10k lab instruments. They're specifically about 'my
two year old BBB doesn't work like my new one'. NTP servers are readily
done as a real appliance. Not a stripped down OS of choice box that is
hosting NTPD that someone calls an 'appliance'.
