So I'm not a fan of this one. Timesource is way to close to
clocksource. Really something like "posix_clockid" would make way more
sense.

But really, I'd prefer we not consolidate the clock_ids into a
dictionary style interface, where we list them all.

Really, I'd much prefer that there be a clockid attribute that hangs
off of the sysfs entry for the device where the PTP clock resides (or
is connected to). That way we solve the issue of how do we map the
device to the clockid, and provide a method for ptpd to get the
clockid.

It also makes these special ids a little less easy to find for normal
applications (which should be ok, as only special applications that
really need to know the underlying hardware values should be mucking
with these clockids).

thanks
