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'.
