Well, there is a time in the GPSDO in seconds that increments once a
PPS. Then there is a time in the FPGA that increments on each clock cycle.

Supposing you make a new uhd device object and a GPSDO is detected, the
time programmed into the FPGA registers is initialized to march in
lock-step with the GPSDO. This is done automatically, but its as simple
as ->set_time_next_pps(gpsdo_time + 1);

I wanted Wu to know that all the GPSDO sensors are available for access
in python. As in "gps_gpgsa", "gps_gprmc", and "gps_gpgga"
