It also invokes getnstimeofday on every single interrupt, including ones
which have absolutely nothing to do with the PPS, and are potentially
high volume. getnstimeofday can be a fairly expensive operation,
especially if the best available clock is away from the CPU, or it
requires extensive arithmetic in order to normalize the clock value...
