Sure, I'm looking into the differences pointed out here.
Of those, I'm going to fix the clk source issue by using the clock framework.
But there are wide differences related to extended BD and indication for
presence of timestamp between different versions of this IP.
As Punnaiah pointed out above, Zynq had a completely different solution.

Thanks. Yes, I'll send out a patch for the Zynq MPSoC version I'm using
and it can be extended.

Regards,
Harini
