If you look at patch 9
(0009-PPS-low-level-IRQ-timestamps-recording.patch) you can see that
we add a (dirty?) trick to improve PPS precision a lot: we record all
IRQ timestamps into static array and then we return those values
instead of ones passed by dcd_change()...

Maybe I can solve the problem defining dcd_change() as follow:

void (*dcd_change)(struct tty_struct *tty, unsigned int status,
void *data)

and then passing the timestamp or struct uart_port pointer?

Thanks,

Rodolfo
